My friend Hannah recently started “Quote from the Books Tuesday”. Each Tuesday she is going to post a quote that she has enjoyed out of a book that she is reading. I thought I’d do the same :)
Today my quote is from The Forgotten God by Francis Chan.
God said to Israel, “You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 29:13-14). When is the last time you sought God with all your heart? We are not Israel, but God still desires to be sought and found by His people. Ask the Holy Spirit to enable you to set everything else aside right now so that you can seek Him wholeheartedly. Tell God you want intimacy with Him, no matter what, even if it necessitates suffering on your part. When the relationship with Him is as it should be, there is nothing more satisfying or meaningful.
I want to be diligent in seeking the Lord with all my heart!
