A Yearning Heart

Romans 5:8
God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

The human heart yearns. As infants, it yearns for sustenance and security. As children, affirmation and discipline; as teens, understanding and positive communication and as adults, unconditional love and commitment. But when these abstract feelings and emotions are denied, the heart begins to yearn for perfect love and becomes aware that other humans can’t provide the needs they yearn for.

When a sorrowing broken heart hears of a God who will love them unconditionally, no matter what, it soars in great joy and thankfulness. It warms and longs for His endearing Words and searches more and more for His mercy and grace. Surely, confidence in Him grows and their cup runs over with this same love for others as the love God gives them.
Romans 5:5 – the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Knowing God is very important in our daily lives for:

  • Peace: Job 22:21 – Acquaint now thyself with thy God and be at peace.
  • Inner freedom: John 8:32 – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
  • Understanding: Proverbs 9:10 – Knowledge of the Holy is understanding.
  • Strength: Daniel 11:32 – The people who know their God shall be strong and do great things.

Matthew 7:7-8
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that aks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.

Seek Him today and you will find Him!
