2 Chronicles 15:4,15 [ESV]
but when in their distress they turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and sought him, he was found by them. 15 And all Judah rejoiced over the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart and had sought him with their whole desire, and he was found by them, and the Lord gave them rest all around.
2 Chronicles 15:4,15 [Message]
But when they were in trouble and got serious, and decided to seek God, the God of Israel, God let himself be found. 15 The whole country felt good about the covenant promise—they had given their promise joyfully from the heart. Anticipating the best, they had sought God—and he showed up, ready to be found. God gave them peace within and without—a most peaceable kingdom!
Formula: SEEK GOD > with all their heart and whole desire
SEEK GOD = BEING FOUND BY GOD
Honesty makes me ask! Seek God? YES!
with my whole heart and whole desire? NO!
In the name of Jesus your son, and my savior, and by the power of the Holy Spirit
Get me to where I can’t seem to get myself.
Get me to “wholly”
Get me to “holy”
