Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 7:11-22 (day seven)
What do you do when it feels like God isn’t hearing your prayers? What do you do when He feels far away? You may internally struggle with thoughts like, “I go to church. I go to Sunday School. I pray but nothing changes. I still don’t feel near to God. He isn’t hearing me.” Our passage of scripture helps answers that question directly: “Seek My face […] then I will hear” vs 14.
Jeremiah 29:12-14 (just after the heavily quoted verse 11) unpacks this thought more, “Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you.”
What are you seeking with all your heart? What is the one thing that you just can’t seem to get your mind off of? If that answer is anything but God, it is going to make finding Him very difficult. God always hears us, but we often do not hear Him because we are seeking other things. Seek His face.
