S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Once again, the Lord spoke through Jeremiah concerning a time that was in the future. The fact remained that Judah had rebelled greatly against their Lord Almighty, and God foretold that soon they would be taken out of Jerusalem to Babylon as slaves by King Nebuchadnezzar. Once there God said, “If you will seek Me you will find Me, when you seek Me with all of your heart.”
I remember growing up in the sixties and experiencing the following: young Americans fighting foreign wars that few were encouraged over. I remember a media war against whoever was in charge, including four presidents during that decade alone. I remember race riots and gangs and drugs and drug overdoses by young and old alike. I also remember in the middle of all the stuff a Holy Spirit, heaven sent, full-on revival among the youth of America known as the “Jesus Movement.” From coast to coast and north to south, young people began all night prayer meetings while seeking the Lord, believing that He alone could calm the storm. Indeed, in time things changed because of that revival. It became known as the Charismatic Movement that saw churches planted and church growth like never before. Now, after years have passed in my life experience, it feels like we’re back to the same old same old. Here’s the remedy. Just like happened during my teen and young adult years, God’s Word remains: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart!” My feeling this AM is simple. “It’s Time To Seek The Lord.”
I’m not running so I’m not desperate for myself. I’m desperate for You to come down and cause a yearning in the hearts of young men and women that is wrought in prayer and desperation. To that end I will seek You! Amen
