“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
Too many have embraced a negative understanding of the life of faith; rooted in fear; consumed with and always on high alert to avoid the treacherous pitfalls snapping at our heels. Such preoccupation is shortsighted and can easily become a self-fulfilling prophecy. While wary, such things should not be our focal point. Instead of running in fear, we live in loving pursuit of the One who is the focal point of our affection.
