Become a Godseeker

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,”

Jeremiah 29:13-14 (NIV)

Have you ever found yourself searching for something so intense that everything else seemed to fade into the background? Perhaps it was a key, a piece of jewelry, or even a dream you chased with all your might. This relentless pursuit, this singular focus, captures what it means to be a Godseeker.

What does it mean to be a Godseeker – to seek God “with all your heart”? It’s a pursuit that transcends the casual, the routine. It’s about setting aside not just our time but our very selves—our hopes, fears, dreams, and doubts—at the feet of the Divine, engaging in a relentless quest for His presence in our lives.

A woman named Ella once lost a family heirloom in the attic. As she sifts through boxes, her search uncovers not only the family heirloom but a treasure trove of forgotten family letters and photographs, each telling stories of love, resilience, and faith. In her quest for one treasure, she finds another, more profound one—her family’s legacy and faith that had quietly shaped her.

This story of Ella mirrors the profound promise found in Jeremiah 29:13-14: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD.

These verses unfold the beauty of seeking God with an undivided heart. They reassure us that when we embark on this journey, we’re not merely on a quest to ‘find’ God in the conventional sense. Instead, we’re promised a return from our wanderings, a gathering from our distractions, and a restoration of our spiritual heritage.

Seeking God wholeheartedly is an intimate journey, not a destination. It’s about daily choosing to draw near to Him through prayer, His Word, and quiet moments of reflection. In these moments, we begin to hear His whispers, feel His guidance, and sense His overwhelming love enveloping us.

Being a Godseeker means engaging in a pursuit that transcends finding answers to prayers or solutions to problems. It’s about rediscovering our identity in God, being restored from our spiritual exile, and finding our place in His grand narrative. It’s a journey that assures us of God’s active presence and desire to be found and known.

Seek God. He’s not hard to find.


Heavenly Father, ignite in us a passion to seek You with every fiber of our being. May our hearts yearn for Your presence above all else and help us find joy in the journey towards You. In moments of distraction, gently guide us back to the path that leads to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Personal Reflection

  1. When did you last feel a deep, consuming desire to know God more intimately? What sparked this desire, and how can you ignite it again?
  2. What steps can you take to seek God more earnestly, embracing the promise of restoration He offers?

Step of Faith

Choose one practice this week that you believe will draw you closer to God—spending a few extra minutes in prayer each morning, reading a chapter of the Bible daily, or simply sitting in silence, listening for His voice. Commit to this practice daily, and note any changes in your heart and life as you seek Him with all your heart.
