Seeking Jesus Brings Fruit in Your Life

A dear young woman named Anna, who is taking the Summer Pursuit, shares:

The past few weeks the Lord has reminded me through answers to prayer that He is all knowing and never runs late. So often, I try to take things into my own hands if there isn’t an immediate answer to prayer. The Lord has been showing me that His timing is perfect and that He knows the desires of my heart and what is best for me.

Looking back, the times that I have set aside to seek the Lord intentionally have been the sweetest, most fulfilling times in my life. I am praying that this summer will be one of focusing on eternal things, rather than temporary things.

Psalm 119:36-37, “Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.”

Knowing Jesus

You were made to know Jesus.

Apart from Him, you cannot be satisfied.  With Him, you can be fully fulfilled.  Knowing Him is what you were meant for.

Jesus is calling you to know Him.  He wants your heart.  He wants you to know Him.  He will help you to do this.

Will you receive His grace to respond?

As you seek Jesus, you will know Him more and more.  No time spent seeking Jesus is wasted.  Knowing Him is the greatest thing you can do. 

Pursue Jesus with all of your heart, friends.

You will never be disappointed. 

“I am the LORD; those who wait for me shall not be put to shame.”  Isaiah 49:23
