We see this throughout scripture. The challenge for us is to consistently seek the Lord and we are then promised that we will find Him. Jesus chose 12 “disciples” to intentionally follow and learn from Him. That is exactly what James meant when he wrote “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you!” (James 4:8).
If we seek Him, we will find Him.
As you and I thaw out from the long cold winter, let us also not neglect to prepare the soil of our hearts for the growth and intimacy of becoming more like Christ, by first of all, seeking Him with eagerness and anticipation for being found by Him.
