“When you look for me, you will find me. When you wholeheartedly seek me (Jeremiah 29:13 (GW)).”
Alan, not his real name, was my friend at the university. His father died when he was young, and his mum catered for him and his siblings with much struggle. He had very few possessions and had trouble settling down in the Uni because he was hard up. His social life was zero!
At a point, he had a road crash, from which he suffered a head injury that troubled him all the time. Regardless, Alan was very cheerful, friendly, and kind to everyone. He studied as much as he could, went for his hospital appointments, looked for God wholeheartedly, found and prayed to Him for help.
Before long, his health improved, and he studied longer and better. In the end, he graduated from the university on schedule, barely missing first-class honors with a few points. Today, he is a University Professor, producing future world changers, history makers, and destiny builders.
Alan looked for and found God, and He helped him. Are you hard-pressed like him at present? Is someone delaying your progress and making life difficult for you? Are you out of a job, and you have no hope of getting another one? Are you ill right now?
Are you troubled that you are single while your mates are married with children? And as a married individual, is someone disturbing your spouse, children, or any of your loved ones? Is any of your children misbehaving at this time?
Are you currently mourning the death of a loved one? Are you involved in a tough lawsuit? Is a system working against you, and you cannot do anything about it? Is your business in ruins as we speak? Or are you in debt with no hope of settling it?
As a student, are you finding it hard to continue your studies? Or, as a Christian, are you struggling with your salvation lately? And do you want to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ anew? ETC.
If your answer is yes to any of the questions above, then cheer up. First, what you are going through is not uncommon, and God will help you out of it (1 Corinthians 10:13). Besides, it is temporary and will make you a better person in the long run (2 Corinthians 4:17, James 1:2-4).
As you move on with 2022, please, identify where you have problems in your life. Then, look for God wholeheartedly to help you with them; you’ll find Him!
Maybe you have done so before, but nothing seemed to have changed; don’t worry, look for Him again. You’ll find Him one day, and He’ll help you (Isaiah 41:13), and your joy will be full in Jesus’ name. Amen.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Jesus is Lord!
