In her book, “You’re Already Amazing”, Holley Gerth writes this:
I believe the desire to know who we really are has been placed within us by the heart of heaven itself. God wants us to understand who he created us to be so that we can fulfill the purpose he has for our lives. (page 23).
Over the course of our lives, we often find ourselves wondering, “Who am I?” or “What am I here for?” Gerth raises an interesting thought….
Perhaps God wants us to ask those questions.
Perhaps it is in asking, we find the answers.
I find myself reminded of this portion of Scripture:
“When you call on me, when youÂ come and pray to me, I’ll listen.
When you come looking for me, you’ll find me.
Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.”
~ Jeremiah 29:13, The Message
God wants us to seek Him. He wants us to come to Him with our questions. He is the One, the Only One who holds the answers for us. Way too often, we look for answers from Him plus an additional source. We have a back-up plan.
Today may we come before Him and ask our questions. May we seek Him and in Him alone find our answers.
The only requirement? Want Him more than anything else.
