You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  Jeremiah 29:13

Have you ever had someone come in the room and try talking to you when you’re in the middle of watching tv?  You try listening to what’s being said but half your attention is still on your show.  You end up either missing what’s going on on the tube (that’s what we called it in the old days – the “tube”), or you miss most of what was said, and you end up nodding your head, pretending you heard, or you have to fess up and say “What did you say?”.

God says we will find Him when we seek Him with our whole heart.  Why?  Why can’t we seek Him with part of our heart?  Because then the rest of our heart is seeking after something else, or many somethings else.

Our attention would be divided, and our God’s is a still, small voice.

He has visions to give, wisdom to impart, paths to share, but He won’t compete with the world.  He won’t compete with us. There is room for only one throne in the heart of each person.  If we’re on it, God can’t be.  But when we get down, all the way down, get rid of the distractions, and let God have His rightful place, then we’re in the position to hear Him.

Then we’ll find Him.  And that’s where the real treasure is. 

Grace and peace,
