Jeremiah 29:12-13 – “In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”
Hey GO21, I’m Jerrod Gunter. I’m a Next Gen Leader at New Direction Church in Memphis, Tennessee. And I’m hyped to share a thought with you around Jeremiah 29:12-13. And it reads like this, “In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” The prophet reminds them that although they’ve been through much, God has not forgotten about them. He assisted, he says, don’t you think for one second that I have forgotten about you. And that’s encouraging to us as well, because we’ve been through a tumultuous time our whole earth is screaming for rest and equality and justice for lives to matter.
Some of us have experienced anxiety more than before, but today God reminds you that He has not forgotten about you. But did you see that part about wholeheartedly? You see, God is looking for hearts that would be divided. You see the hope and the future that we are seeking for will be realized by those that will seek him with an eagerness and with a sincerity as if we were seeking for a treasure it’s not going to be found through other methods to realize our hope and a future it’s not going to be found through Jesus and horoscopes to realize our future or Jesus and crystals for our peace is going to be through Jesus alone, a heart that will seek him wholeheartedly.
You see, God will hear us, but he won’t compete with other things that are in our heart today. Ask yourself what is one way that I can begin to seek him wholeheartedly. Hey, can I pray for you?,
Father God, we just want to say thank you. We thank you for the opportunity to get to be a part of your plan. We thank you God, for the desire, God, to be a part of your mission, to go and make disciples. I pray God that you reveal our heart to us and that we would seek you wholeheartedly. Thank you for being a part of this time. And so we thank you and we love you. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
Hey, listen, I’m rooting for you, man. Let’s seek Him with our whole hearts. Let’s go! Peace.
Pray to seek God wholeheartedly today.
Listen for a need someone in your life has.
