1 Chronicles 28:9 (NKJV)
9 “As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.”
We all need God’s love. Only when we allow ourselves to be drawn to Him will we ever be able to understand our need for His love. His love goes beyond what we can measure, so that is why we need to open up to Him.
As we seek to serve Him, we will only see His love as we come to Him with a loyal heart and an open mind. A loyal heart requires us to focus on Him. Being committed, putting complete trust in Him, and putting Him first in all we do will reflect a loyal heart. A willing mind means we seek His thoughts. Seeking Him eliminates over-thinking or it will help us understand coming to Him in prayer. Opening ourselves to His love and His answers will help us get our hearts right.
When we are right with Him, when He searches our hearts and when He looks at our intent, He will see that we are seeking His love. When we seek Him, He is always there for us. We have His promise of being found if we will put our complete trust in Him.
So, do You realize your need for Him? Seek Him so that you will not be cast off forever. God loves you and sent His Son, and Jesus loves you by paying the price on the cross for you. God loves you that much so seek out all the love He has for you.
Thank You for Your love. Please help me get my heart right with You. Please help me stay focused on You, and please shape my heart into being all that You desire it to be. Thank You for loving me even when I fall short.
In our Loving Savior’s Name, we pray, Amen.
