Should I Give Up Trying To Find God?

We look for God and feel we gave it a try but have not found Him so maybe we should quit. Is there a reason we should keep on looking for God?

The Bible says yes...
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13.

This verse teaches a positive and affirmative truth that it will happen; your search will not be in vain, you will find the only True God.

We must search for Him with sincerity, honesty, and integrity. We must search for him with passion of spirit and diligence of mind.

To search like this is to:

     * Not give up the search.
     * Be willing to give up things for the search.
     * Be willing to go out on a limb to find the prize.
     * To be willing to pay a price.
     * To consider the other promises in scripture about finding Him.
     * To set aside opinions and be open to the truth in His Word.
     * To resolve that no matter how long it takes to continue the search.

There is a trinity in this verse, a threesome of the word, "ME." Our search for the Divine One is not a search for a vague consciousness, or a universal force, or a higher state of mind, but a person with a self-identity; a person who can say "Me, I am the one you are looking for."

That he says me three times gives the hope that we won't just find a teaser or a hint or become acquaintances with The Almighty but we will find all of him He holds nothing back, he is willing to be known completely.

These words in scripture are a promise from the Lord for those who seek him. He is making an offer that is like a guarantee. The Word teaches that God does not lie nor does he break a promise. He is saying to you that he will be found if you keep on seeking him.

Footnote: Some feel the threefold use of the word me, as individual references to the trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
