1-20-19 THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…KEEP LOOKING!! YOU’LL FIND HIM!! We all have played the age-old game of hide-n-seek. I played it often with my children when they were growing up. I would hide and they would try to find me. The game is pretty simple and lots of fun. The whole point of the game was to hide so they would eventually find me…and that was the best part. I would never hide in a place where I could not be found, that would take the fun out of the game, because the real joy was in them finding me. The next funniest part of the game was that when they hid, they hid in the same place they had just found me. The Bible promises us that if we seek God that we will find him. God never hides so He cannot be found. (Matthew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.) God delights when we seek Him with all our heart and He loves to be found by us. The one sure way to find God is to seek Him with our whole heart. Let finding God be the only thing on our mind. (Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.) Let finding God’s solution to our issues be the only answer we desire. Let trusting God to open doors that we cannot open be the only key we trust. Let believing God to be the only means we use to find our purpose in life. God is not hid! Seek Him. You will find He is not very far away. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
