I know the plans I have in mind for you, declares the Lord; they are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you a future filled with hope. When you call me and come and pray to me, I will listen to you. When you search for me, yes, search for me with all your heart, you will find me. I will be present for you, declares the Lord, and I will end your captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have scattered you, and I will bring you home after your long exile, declares the Lord.
Jeremiah 29:11-14 CEB
God I call out to You. I seek You in every area of my life. I seek You in every instance. I need You Father. I ask for restoration. I ask to be realigned. Father show me how far I’ve strayed from Your path so that I can walk where You want me. I want to come back to You. I want to be committed to knowing Your touch, Your voice, and Your correction immediately. I humbly pray to You this day as a believer in Jesus, as a person who wants to earn the right to call myself a Christian. Amen.
Whatever you’re going through seek God. Ask Him to be there even when you aren’t confident of the outcome. Ask Him to comfort you. Ask Him to show you the plumb line so that you can see how far you have strayed, and then seek Him for restoration.
Build the relationship that you need so that any time you stray, even slightly, there is an immediate recognition, and correction.
