I FIND HIM

"And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13, NIV).
If I seek Him with all of heart, I shall find Him. If I really desire all of Him, I must come to Him starving and poor in my spirit. If I am starving, I will be filled (Matthew 5:6). If I am poor in spirit, I have the promise of the kingdom of heaven within my grasp (Matthew 5:3). I must be so hungry for His freedom that I am willing to totally surrender all that I am. I must come to Him laying down all preconceptions of who He is. This verse is a promise that drives me to His Word to absorb what each truth imparts. It drives me to meet Him at His altar, lay down all that I am, and receive all that He is. He rewards my journey with the grace of His presence. I am changed again and againtransformed by the power of His love and mercy.
In this time with Him, I know that He is my God, and He will never fail me. His strength and joy will conquer all that comes against me. He is my guide through the pitfalls. No weapon can rise and come against me. No discipline can drag me down and tire me. No problem can terrorize my heart. I shall persevere and hold on for His best. I will make it through each difficulty of life because I have sought Him in all moments. He is my strength because I have none within myself, and in my lacking, I have discovered His.
