Lessons In Truth - Lesson 1 - Annotation 8
What is the result of our persistently seeking God in every situation? Is there any condition in which God cannot be found?
8. The result of our persistently seeking God in every situation is that we find Him as understanding, love, guidance, healing, supply, faith, wisdom, peace. This was a revelation of Jeremiah who wrote to the Israelite captives in Babylon
"And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith Jehovah" (Jer. 29:13,14).
There is no situation in which God cannot be found, for He is the one Presence and the one Power. If there is any appearance in a situation that seems not good, we come to see that this has been caused by man's wrong use of the powers that are his to form conditions. We must learn to use consciously the laws of life through our thinking in ways that produce only desired good. Our search for God in every situation reveals that His substance, His power, His life, His intelligence are always awaiting our acceptance. We must learn to use aright the power of thinking so as to form only good conditions in our life.
