After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers.
When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”
“Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”
Jesus has said often in scriptures that He is in the Father and the Father is in Him. If we read the Bible, we should know where to go to find Him.
But many people today wander around with blindfolds not tied but held up to their heads by their own hands. They say they can’t see God, and they’re right. They haven’t tried.
How many owners of electronic devices find a problem with their device and yell at the device, “Stop messing up! Why don’t you work?”? After unsuccessfully trying to fix the problem themselves, they call a customer service number to get the help they need. But people who need God’s help don’t always ask for it. After unsuccessfully trying to fix the problem themselves, they stop trying.
Those who called the customer service number can know that they took the obvious steps to get help. However, those who didn’t call on God have no excuse.
If you’re having a hard time finding God, ask yourself, “How bad do I want to find Him?”
Do you really want to find God?
Then seek Him from the bottom of your heart. Seek Him with the people who know Him. Seek Him wherever He wants to be.
And then ask Him to stay with you.
From that point on, you’ll always know where He is. You’ll always be able to speak to Him. You’ll always have access to His love.
Are you seeking God with me today?
