STRATEGIC TIMING is often involved in the fulfillment of God’s promises. “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13 This is the same portion of Scripture that speaks, “I know the plans I have for you” and “I will listen to you….I will be found by you”.
God is directly speaking to Israel and that after a 70 year period of captivity, His people would call upon Him. After a time of affliction, He would be found by His people for they would cry out to Him and He would return them to the Promised Land. Jeremiah prophesied a new fullness of time for God’s people. God would move within a holy remnant so that they would seek Him with all their heart. Then He would hear from heaven and fulfill His promise of restoration. God fulfilled this Word. He is faithful. Fast forward to today, everybody wants the Jeremiah 29:11 promise without the affliction.
Like Israel, God has a plan for His people. He has specific and strategic timing for these latter days events. He is shaking everything that can be shaken. He is stripping away all idols. He is revealing hearts and minds and He will only be found by a remnant of those who truly seek Him with all their hearts. He has given us a promise like the one Jeremiah prophesied so many years ago to Israel.
He still says, “Seek Me with all your heart, hold fast to My Word and do not deny My name; endure to the end”, and “run the race that has been set before you firmly to the end”. And He promises, “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” Revelation 3:10 In times of affliction, we don’t run away and hide in self-preservation. We rise and defy the spirit of Antichrist. We repent and call upon the name of the Lord. We engage and endure until the end, arm and arm with a holy remnant of believers. #runyourrace
