"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." NIV
"And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." KJV
We all have an interest in seeking and finding God. Many of us search the scriptures and read great writings of our church fathers. Some of us gather with like minded Christians and share what knowledge we have accrued. These are all good ways to know about God. But to find him personally, our hearts must be in a place of desperation, a necessary thing for our survival. If our hearts are in this place, it is because we have discovered our pitiful condition. Then we will seek him with our whole hearts and we will find Him.
Heavenly Father, how thankful we are for your Word, the anointed writings of Godly men and women, and our fellow Christians with whom we can share. Most of all, we thank you and ask you to help us to see the condition of our hearts, that we will know we cannot make it without having a personal relationship with you. Help us to seek you with our whole hearts. In Jesus' name. Amen.
