Whenever my family and I go out to dinner, I can almost always predict how they will order; what they will eat, what they will drink, who likes extra ice and extra tomatoes. No, I am not a mind reader, but because I have spent so much time with them I know what they like. In fact, because I know them so well, I can pretty much predict how they will react in almost all situations. If you were to go out to eat with the Lord, would you be able to order for Him?
In Jeremiah 29:11-13 it states, “11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Yes, most people are familiar with verse 11, but have you really stopped to read verse 13?
If we really want to know the Lord in the same manner that we know our families, we must spend time with Him. We must find Him, and search for Him “with all of your heart”. We can’t know Him if we never spend any time with Him. If you were go go out to eat with the Lord today, would you be able to order for Him?
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
