Jeremiah 29:12-14 (MSG)
“When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen.”When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. “Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.” God’s Decree. “I’ll turn things around for you. I’ll bring you back from all the countries into which I drove you”—God’s Decree—”bring you home to the place from which I sent you off into exile. You can count on it.
God’s message is clear. When we come to Him He will come to us and He will listen. He’s waiting for us to make the first move.
The question is are you serious about finding Him? Do you really want Him more than anything else? His presence? His guidance? His forgiveness? and His peace?
Relationship requires time with God. This is simply speaking with Him in every circumstance, bringing your needs, dreams and hopes before Him.
Time spent brings about intimacy. As you do this the promise is clear. It’s inevitable. Do you want things turned around? Draw close to Him and you won’t be disappointed. His word says, “You can count on it!”
