For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV)
When learning about a particular subject in school you get the most out of the lessons by being passionate and giving it you’re all. You give the teacher an attentive ear; you ask the right questions; you study hard; you practice what you have learned. And in the end you succeed by getting an A+ and a “Job well done!”
Following Christ and giving your life over to God is a lot like that! And this is what He expects… you’re all! He wants your heart! You need to be passionate; you need to give an attentive ear; you need to study His word; you need to pray and ask the right questions. Seek his face and He will give you peace, a future, and a hope. And in the end you will receive your just rewards an A+ you good and faithful servant, “Job well done!”
“If we expect to get our prayers answered then we must seek The Lord in His Word and in prayer, we must give Him our all, and speak to Him In a clear voice, listen with an attentive ear! “
