Jeremiah 29:11-13

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”


God never intended for His children to be confused and anxious all the time. He doesn’t create confusion, but sometimes He will allow confusing situations to teach us things. What He wants from His people is for them to seek Him constantly with the right heart, and then they will find Him. It was in this approach that Nicodemus found the answer to his heart's cry when he walked with Jesus. In Nicodemus’s heart, he sought truth and he found it simply because he called upon Jesus and hearkened unto Him.


God has a plan for your life. Rest assured in the fact that the future isn’t in your control, but it is entirely in God’s loving and caring hands. The situations at the moment are preparing you for something better just around the corner. He doesn’t want evil to be surrounding you or to overcome you. His plan is to surround you with His wings and, within their cover, provide you with Godly peace that surpasses your understanding.


So be at peace and know that the Lord knows what He is doing in your life and has plans of peace within your circumstances. Call upon the Lord when you don’t understand what is going on so that His plans become a reality to you. When you feel lost and alone, go and pray unto Him and seek His wisdom in decisions. Pray without ceasing.


He can be found when you search for Him with all your heart.

28 Look at Nicodemus coming to Him. Nicodemus was a scholar coming to a Man that had no diploma. He was aristocrat coming to a pauper. He was an old teacher coming to the youth. See the difference? But when he come, he come with a open heart seeking the truth. You come that way. Just come the same way with a open heart seeking truth. “Seek and ye shall find; knock, it’ll be opened; ask and ye shall receive.” That’s it. That’s the basis that Jesus said to come on.
