All Your Heart

Deuteronomy 4:29-31 (NKJV)

29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. 30 When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice 31 (for the Lord your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.

Do you seek God with all your heart?  Do you put Him first in all you do?  Mistakes happen when we take matters into our own hands.  Relationships are destroyed when we do not have a relationship with our Heavenly Father.  We must give Him our whole heart.  This means spend time in prayer and in the Scriptures to get to know Him and allow Him to speak to you.  When we get our walk with Him correct every step will be better.  Now understand that does not mean you come up with an idea and find a Scripture to justify a wrong.  Wrong choices, wrong motives, and wrong ideas will lead to a wrong relationship with Him.

When we get things right with God all other relationships will fall into place.  Family situations that are put before God first will overcome obstacles.  Families with struggles usually start without forgiveness.  We need to be willing to forgive and seek forgiveness and that comes from the love of God.  Too many times we see splits occur, children that do not have a relationship with their parents, or parents that no longer reach out to their children.  God loves all His children and He wants us to give Him our whole heart.  When we understand His love, we then are even stronger in our loving others.  We begin to see them with Christ-like eyes and not hurtful eyes.  We are more willing to pray for them instead of judging them.

Understand you may have had some relationships in the past that still need to be reconciled.  Once again seek God and His forgiveness and see what He desires to show you.  Too many times we lose touch and put off reaching out and there may be times it can be too late.  As you get right with God so many times those that are put in your mind are for you to pray for.  As you pray for them the Holy Spirit can prepare them and what looked impossible is now possible with God.

So, give God you whole heart and see what He has for you.  He loves you and desires that you share His love as He resides in you.  What an awesome God we have that loved us enough to send His Son Jesus for us.  So, ask Him into your heart and allow Him to live in you and through you as you give Him all the glory.
