The scripture for today, April 29, is Deuteronomy 4:29 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
God is always nearby, but we do not always acknowledge it. He will not force himself on us. So he waits.
There is an old expression, “To know him is to love him.” This is true also of God. God is talking to you in his Bible, explaining what he is like and how he reacts to every possible situation in life. Seek him there. He is talking to you.
The conversation turns the other way when we talk to him in response to what we have read, or what we are trying to apply to our lives, or our concern for others. This mutual conversation with God is the with-all-your-heart-and-soul kind.
And it is good.
