Deuteronomy 4:29 (NASB) says, “But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.”
I have no doubt that many Christians have, at some point in their lives, felt that God has moved away from them. Either that or they feel that they have somehow moved away from God.
Moses reminds the Israelites, in Deuteronomy, to truly seek after God in order to have a personal relationship with Him. We understand God’s will and character when we read His Word, listen to His disciples, and have faith in His ability to move upon our hearts. We only move away from God when we stop seeking His guidance and companionship.
At times, our flesh battles against our willingness to let God lead every aspect of our lives. It is in those times of weakness that believers need to admit we are truly nothing without the power of God; His Word, His omnipotence, and His compassion is more than sufficient.
God wants to be a part of our lives. That is why the Bible was written, and it is why God was willing to send His Son to suffer on the cross at Calvary.
If we truly seek a one on one relationship with God, there is nothing that can stand in our way. So, toss aside any fear or doubt that rejection is even a possibility, and trust that Moses truly knew what he was talking about when he said, “You will find Him if you search with all your heart and soul.”
