This morning it came to me that many times we come to God and seek Him; we seek Him passionately, desperately...for a while but give up along the way if we think there are many challenges or it is taking too long.

I remember when I lost a diamond earring a couple of years ago. I had lost it at the Philadelphia airport and discovered it when I got home at 2:30 in the morning. My husband went back to the airport purposed to find it at all costs. The cleaners had swept the airport and stacked the trashbags outside. They searched high and low and then they decided to search the trashbags. (yak!) They went through each one and believe it or not, they found it! Persistence, determination...the will to find!

As I reflected on this, I thought of some situations in the Bible. In Luke 19:1-10, we have the story of zacchaeus, the wealthy tax collector. He was short in desperation to find Jesus, He climbed up the sycamore tree and the Lord looked up and said 'Zacchaeus, come down.' That day way his day of salvation. In addition, Zaccheaus said that if he had cheated young or old that he would return it.  That day was the turning point in his life  as Jesus was invited not only to his house, but into His heart!

The woman with the issue of blood pressed through the crowds against all odds. She was focussed, she know who she was looking for and what she was looking for and she touched the hem of his garment and the Lord Jesus felt power leave His body. The rest is history. There is also the woman with the spirit of infirmity in Luke 13:10-13.

In Mark 13:10-13, we see Bartimaeus. He was blind and knew Jesus could heal him so as Jesus passes by He shouted 'Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on Me'. The people told him to be quiet. The more they tried to hush him up, the louder he shouted. As a result, Jesus STOPPED and asked him what he wanted..........and he was healed.

Do not allow people, shame, disgrace, length of time, physical stature, status....to distract you from seeking. Do what it takes. You have to know who you are seek and when He could be found! When we seek Him, we will find Him, when we search for Him with all our hearts! father, we pray for the will to make it so!
