Deuteronomy 4:29 reminds us that no matter how bleak things seem, we can always find God. Deuteronomy 4:29 But from there … (visit YouTube for more)
Jesus said, seek and you shall find. Perhaps he was making reference to Deuteronomy chapter 4, verse 29, which says: But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.
And this is in a chapter where the Israelites are told that they are going to desert God. And then from a place of great suffering and tribulation, they will call out to him.
And the incredible thing that this verse reminds us is that from that place of suffering, after we’ve abandoned God, after we’ve turned away from Him, after we’ve said we want nothing to do with Him, we’d rather have these other gods, these other idols, he’s still there. He’s still waiting for us. If we search for Him with all our hearts, if we repent, if we turn around and face back towards God, we will find Him.
God isn’t like a jilted lover. He doesn’t say, well then, I want nothing more to do with you. When we do things to wound our Saviour, when we sin and take our share in causing the suffering that held Him there on the cross, nevertheless. He still says, Father forgive them.
And so when the realisation hits that He is a faithful and true and just and kind God, we turn back to him, we search for him with all our heart, with all our soul, and we will find him. Because he’s always looking for us.
Thank you God for your faithfulness.
