Jeremiah 29:12-13 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
In Alaska we are in a season of calling on the Lord and praying for the Lord to move, for laborers to be sent, for souls to be saved, body’s to be healed, the saints revived,the body of Christ unified, and for His glory to increase. What we know is that when we call on Him and pray to Him, He will LISTEN! We have the ear of the Lord. In these 40 days I believe we have His ear, we have His attention in a increased way because we have set aside the beginning of this year in such a focused way.
We are SEEKING Him and again we have a promise that we will FIND HIM! In verse 13 its says we will find Him when we seek Him with all of our hearts. When we see that word HEART its a full word. It actually means much more then just a place of emotion or a part of us, its means our mind, will, emotions, intellect, our understanding, with courage, passion, and desire. To me that means my entire being.
When we set our face toward Jesus and we give ourselves fully to seeking Him, holding nothing back, we will surely find Him. When we find Him we find encounter and with encounter comes change, we find breakthrough, we find love, we find healing, we find salvation and we find the Kingdom! How much more will FIND HIM when we do this as a unified body during these 40 days of prayer and fasting?
Jesus…. I am calling on your name, I am praying to you and I know you are listing to me. Jesus…..I am pursing you with my whole heart, with all that I am. Let me find you as you are, let me see your face, I want to encounter you Jesus and be changed by your presence so that others would find you through me.
