I’m writing prompted by FMF and the word “promise”.
Not originally thinking of Jeremiah, I was reading from the Book of John, Thomas the one called the doubter asking why should we believe in a place we don’t know.
Jesus replied essentially, because you know me and thus you know my Father, God,
and you can be certain.
I don’t really think Thomas doubted as much as he was just intrigued. Heaven and God are intriguing, after all.
So much to know!
Believing, according to Jesus was all they needed to know.
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.”
John 14:1 ESV
I flipped to Jeremiah on my way to the day’s Psalm and started touching up and coloring in a place I’d been before.
I added the female form in the other margin and I found the familiar words about plan and purpose.
Then I found the promise.
The unwaveringly certain promise.
I will always find God.
There’s not a promise more significant.
I look for God in confusing times, I wait and clarity comes.
I look for God, seek Him by interrupting my day to kneel down to pray.
Momentarily or much later, I find Him.
My circumstances change.
Here’s the promise.
We are seen by a God who loves us. He waits to be found again and again.
“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord…”
Jeremiah 29:13-14 ESV
