Jeremiah 29:11-13 (KJV) “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart”
“God has good plans for me? You can’t be serious, leave that story for your church members. I’m done with God. I believed and followed him twenty good years and had nothing to show for it, I’m done, I’m just done with whatever has to do with God”. This was Regina’s response when her youth Pastor visited her and encouraged her from today’s text.
Almost every Christian knows or must have at least heard the first part of today’s text, the proceeding verses are however are not commonly heard. As important as knowing what God’s promises are (The What), it is equally important to know how to access them (The How) and when to access them (The When).
For twenty years, Regina only knew what God’s promises were but her ignorance of when and how to access them led to her frustration. The same has been the case for many Christians.
From today’s text, verse 11 describes God’s plan for you while verses 12 and 13 describe how and when to access them.
If your story is similar to Regina’s, you probably should begin to call on the name of the Lord and seek Him with the whole of your heart because the promises are for those who seek God with their whole heart.
Go into today knowing that, seeking the Lord with your whole heart is what guarantees access to His promises.
Prayer: Father, I ask for the grace to seek you with my whole heart and appropriate your promises for me, In Jesus Jesus’ name. Amen!
