1. God says "If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me." (Jeremiah 29:13).
If you're confused about God's will and feeling distant from Him, ask yourself if you've been seeking Him halfheartedly. (See also "When God Is Silent.")
2. God says "apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:5).
If you feel like you're wasting your time when you take on a project, ask yourself if you've neglected to first ask for God's guidance and strength.
3. God says "Do not love this world nor the things it offers you" because these things have no eternal value (1John 2:15-17).
If you're feeling empty, ask yourself if you've been seeking your own kingdom instead of God's.
Dear Christians, let's not only read God's Word, let's "do what it says" (James 1:22-25).
