When you look for me with all your heart, you will find me. Jeremiah 29:13 NIV
Sometimes we look for “larger than life” moments to be reminded God is near. We wait for BIG displays of grandeur and forget to open our eyes for the smaller gifts He provides. But God knows how to remind us He is HERE. He prepares us to receive Him and helps us recognize when we have been blessed.
When we’re ready to receive what God has planned for our days, He finds the way to reach us. As we welcome Him with prayers of our praise, we become stronger than before. God helps us find strength from the Savior. He shows us why we need Him.
Christ guides us to the Father. And in moments to humble our hearts, He will leads us where we recognize the need for mercy and grace. He fills us with the power of love and brings peace to those who learn how it feels to trust.
God will make His presence known. But we must be still and seek Him. We must learn to WAIT in the timing of His will. He will open our eyes a little wider and reveal what's waiting to be seen. Jesus will lift us with arms of strength and provide the way to see glimpses of what's to come. He will fill us with perfect peace. He will remind us how to find Him, if we look with ALL of our hearts.
Dear God, Thank you for Your love. Open our eyes, so we will be humbled by the gift of Your grace and experience the presence of Your peace. Arm us with everything we need to remember who’s in charge of our days. And help us remember we WILL find You in the prayers of our praise, if we remain faithful and trust in You. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
