“But when they were in trouble and got serious, and decided to seek God…God let Himself be found… ‘But it’s different with you: Be strong. Take heart. Payday is coming.’ Asa heard the prophesy of Azariah son of Obed, took a deep breath, then rolled up his sleeves, and went to work.” (2 Chronicles 15; 2-3, 7 MSG)
NOTE TO SELF: Even the best of us have fallen far from God’s love and mercy. We all have those moments when we want to leave God, or we just do.
God knows us inside and out. He tells us time and time again, “It’s different with you. Take heart. Be strong! It’s all going to work out.” But how can we be so sure?
When we get serious and seek God again, LOOK!, God “let’s” Himself be found! It’s that easy. While we play hide and seek with God, finding clever new hiding spots far, far away, God plays the role of the gentle Father, allowing Himself to be found so you don’t have to spend all your time and energy searching.
Don’t get caught up in your trouble. Instead, take a deep breath, roll up your sleeves and believe that it’s different with you. You are not ordinary or normal. You are the child of the God most high!
