Jeremiah 29:13 says,
You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
If I were to seek the Lord with all my heart, so many things would change in my life. How I do things and make decisions would change so drastically. When I am making decisions, I fall on one end of the spectrum or the other, depending on the circumstance. When I comes to big, huge decisions, like what I am doing with my life, I get so bogged down and so concerned with the details and parts of the choices, that I am not able to actually able to make a decision. I also fall on the other end of the spectrum when in certain circumstances, with certain people, I make quick, rash decisions and that is where I get in the most trouble.
If I were to seek God with all my heart, I would go into these decisions in a completely different fashion. In these huge, life-altering decisions, I would approach the throne of God and seek His will for my life. I would ask Him for guidance before getting stressed out about the details. I would trust that He has a plan for my life, as He states He does in Jeremiah 29:11, just a few verses earlier.
For I know the plans I have for your, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
In the smaller, day-to-day decisions, I would be so focused on the will of God and the plan He has for me, that the decisions I would make would be more aligned with the will of God. I wouldn’t go with the wrong crowd or places I shouldn’t be.
As I go through this week, I pray that you and I will seek God in each and every decision that we make, both big and small.
What would it look like for you to seek God with all your heart?
