The scripture for today, April 29 (4/29), is Deuteronomy 4:29 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
Ah, to find God. Who are you, God? What do you do all through my day? What do you have to say to me? Or do you not say anything? Do you even see me, God? Where are you? I cannot find you.
Open your eyes, friend. God is always nearby. There is an old expression, “To know him is to love him.” So true. To find God, get to know him. He is talking to you right now in his Bible, explaining what he is like and how he reacts to every possible situation in life. Open your Bible. Look through the mini-books within. God not only gives you examples of right and wrong ways to seek Him, but he gives you beautiful psalms and proverbs for your everyday life. And, wonder of wonders, He tells how He came down to us and walked among us as Jesus. Seek him there. He is talking to you.
Well, don’t you have anything to say about this? Of course, you do. The conversation turns the other way when you talk to him in response to what you have read, or what you are trying to apply to your life, or your concern for others.
Yes, seek and you will find. This mutual conversation with God is the with-all-your-heart-and-soul kind. You can do it. He is waiting for you.
And it is good.
