We cannot pass a parking meter in this town without Joshua begging us… “Daddy, can I check for money?”
Weirdest thing is this: most of the time he finds a coin.
I realize that is probably an exaggeration. It feels like it should be an exaggeration. How is it possible that he keeps finding this money? He told me and his mom tonight that he found a dime and we both responded, “Of course you did.” I am more surprised when he does not find something.
So he keeps looking in those meters. And because he keeps looking, he keeps finding.
My son might be a millionaire by the time he is 30 on found money alone.
This is how it feels to follow Jesus.
When I pursue God, I find God. When I look for the power of Jesus, I find it. I am actually surprised if I talk to God and do not hear from Him. He is that faithful – nope, He is much more faithful than that.
Jeremiah, the prophet, wrote God’s promise in Jeremiah 29:13, “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”
It feels like an exaggeration doesn’t it? Every time?
Yep. Every time.
Maybe today is the day you seek God with all your heart. I promise you will find Him. I have that much confidence in God’s Word. Need help? Give me a call and we will find Him together.
