Many people are familiar with Jeremiah 29:11 which says "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". For most people the verse stops there, but there is more.
It goes on to say in verse 12 and 13 "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart"
The Lord wants good for us, He wants to bless us. We cannot however just sit around and wait expecting it to come, we need to seek Him with all our heart.
