What does it mean to seek the Lord? It means to eliminate distractions and turn your focus on him, give him your full attention, and put yourself in a position to hear from him. Too often we say we are seeking the Lord when the truth is that we are spending our time and energies looking everywhere else. We spend more time looking to popular culture, self-help books, social media, and TV talk shows than we do soaking in the Word of God. If you truly want to find God, to know him, and to hear from him, then you have to put your heart into it. What does your heart want today?
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
What did God say to you as you read today’s Bible passage?
What word or phrase was most meaningful to you?
How does it apply to your life?
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. But take a minute to write a prayer of response to God.
