Daily Devotional – Created for God’s Presence

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Jeremiah 29: 10-14Verse 11 has graced more coffee cups than we can count. God has plans for us. God knows these plans and is working all things to bring about His will and plans.

This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.[b] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

It is God’s plan that we come back to Him. God will create in us a desire and need to call out and seek after Him because He wants us to draw nearer to Him. God knows us and knows what strings to pull to get our attention. God was saying to Israel here in Jeremiah that He was longing for the day that the people would search for Him.

Being in God’s presence is like nothing else. God created us for the purpose of experiencing it. How I have loved the times when God has surrounded me with His presence like a bear hug. He engulfed me and my hair stood on end. God will not hide from us, rather makes Himself available for us. If only we will search for Him!

How desperately do we search for God, make time for Him, and His presence? 

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Your presence and spirit are water to my soul I have tasted and seen how wonderful Your presence is. I come before You with open hands and arms wide open to take You in and lose myself in You! Truly, better is one day in Your presence than thousands elsewhere.

In Jesus’ name,
