01/23               Jeremiah 29:12-14

12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. 14 I will be found by you,” says the LORD . “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.” 


This particular prophecy is dealing with Israel and God’s work in them.  But, in addition to the return of the Jews to Israel the Lord is talking about your life.  We wander from the Lord for a multitude of reasons but in fact because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of the Lord.  Therefore we need His guidance to find our way home, and to be committed to Him and to be serving Him.  Life is a journey and Jesus will guide us on that journey if we will submit to Him, ask His help and seek Him.
