“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, ”
I’m sure you can understand now why the title of this word is ‘Available God‘.
This word is so precious and should give us great comfort at all times, because the Lord Himself declares here (in other words) that;
‘I am always here’
‘I am dependable’
‘I am reliable’
‘I am not hiding’.
‘I am not hiding’…
He reassures us that despite the fact that His ways are not our ways, and we don’t always know what He’s thinking (Isaiah 55:8-9), He is forever an Accessible, Ever-Present, Attentive God!
If we go back a little, and start reading from verse 12 in Jeremiah 29, the word of God also tells us that He will hear us when we call.
Now let’s get a bit of context here…
God is speaking through the prophet Jeremiah in a letter he pens to people who were taken into exile (being kept away from their native land) from Jerusalem to Babylon.
Already we can imagine the heartache, and sour emotions of the inconvenience of being in a foreign land, but the purpose of this letter was to empower the heart of the people and encourage them, and instruct them on how to survive and continuing living, ultimately in a way that will lead to their triumph.
Who needs this word today?
I don’t know what you’re going through, I don’t know your hardship, but God says He knows your circumstance and will never stop being your God.
Despite how massive this earth is, He knows exactly where you are right now, and He is there with you.
He says; ‘I will fulfil my promise to you’ – Jeremiah 29:10
He says; ‘I will never leave, nor forsake you’ – Deuteronomy 31:6
He says; ‘I will hear you when you call and pray’ – Jeremiah 29:12
He says; ‘I will be found by you’ – Jeremiah 29:14
God doesn’t deprive us of Himself.
The words we’ve read above, along with Psalm 34:15, give us confidence that God is always watching over us and listening out for us. Therefore when our hearts cry out and yearn for Him, we can trust that it won’t be an unending nor unanswered cry.
Rather, we can be assured that God will attend to our needs (Philippians 4:19), and fight on our behalf (Deuteronomy 3:22).
I think many times we wonder if we ever actually feel God for real, or ever hear Him speaking and feel Him moving for real, but I want to encourage you to never stop calling or looking for Him, because God is most definitely near to us (Acts 17:27).
He is indeed an Available, Ever-Ready, Ever-Present God (Psalm 46:1), and I pray that we will never stop seeking Him, because I know for sure, that we will always find Him at the end of our search for Him (Matthew 7:7-8).
Keep the Faith, Don’t Stop Believing
God Bless you.
