Today’s Key Scripture (all references NKJV unless otherwise noted:

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.                                   — Jeremiah 29:13-14

If closeness with God is your desire, here is some wonderful news: The Lord desires a close relationship with you, even more than you do!

From the time God created Adam, man was created for fellowship. And from the moment sin broke that fellowship, the Lord offered ways to rebuild a loving relationship. Enoch is mentioned in the Bible simply for walking with God. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were also known for their fellowship with the Lord, for He continually and patiently looked for those whose hearts were after Him.

Think back for a moment to the time when Moses was given instructions for the building of the ark of the covenant: “And thou shalt put the mercy seat above you upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat” (Exodus 25:21-22).

God’s greatest desire was to commune with His servant Moses, and His great desire still is to commune with you. Remember the veil was rent in two and the way unto the Holies was opened. Today, all you have to do is seek Him with all your heart!

A Prayer for Today:

God in heaven, I do seek you with all of my heart. I thank You for preparing my heart to spend time with You today. Thank You for giving me a future and a hope.
