If You Seek God – He Will Let You Find Him
God has promised that if you seriously seek for Him with all your heart, He will let you find Him. That is, if you seriously seek Him, you can find Him.
You will call to Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you. . . Jeremiah 29:12-14 (NASB)
A wonderful illustration of this is recorded in the book of Acts (Acts 8:25-40). We are told an Ethiopian eunuch was traveling in a chariot. He was reading a prophecy about Jesus Christ in Isaiah 53:7-8, but he did not understand what he was reading. He wanted to know of whom the passage was speaking. God responded to his desire and sent a man named Philip to meet the eunuch and explain that the passage was about Jesus Christ. As a result, the eunuch found God. He believed Jesus Christ died for his sins. Jesus did everything necessary for him to have his sins forgiven, escape hell and go to heaven. This illustration reveals that if anyone searches for God, God will reveal Himself to that person.
