Pray and Find God

The “Message” translation of the Bible paraphrases one of my very favorite verses in the Bible.

I have a need. That need is to know God. In fact God created us to know Him. That is something I discovered somewhat in my late teens, but my admiration and love for Him has certainly grown through my life’s journey. About the time I think I have it all together, something happens where I MUST press in and re-focus. I MUST know him even more and to really process my distractions.

One thing that is learned that when you read the Bible is that God is a God of love. Think of Him as a loving Father. We may or may not have had that in our personal lives, but that doesn’t change Him!

Well, here is that verse that I really like…

11 I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. 12 “When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. Jeremiah 29:11-12 (MSG)
