And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.  I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.  (Jeremiah 29:13-14)

God does not want half-heartedness.  To be partially faithful is to be wholly unfaithful.  How do you think your spouse would react if you said, “Honey, I will love you 364 days out of the year, but on just one night I am going to share my love with someone else”?  Yet, we often have divided affections when it comes to the Lover of our souls.  The truth is that we have as much of God as we want.  The only issue is—do we have a passion for Him?   God’s Spirit, by His Word, summons us to seek Him today—particularly and persistently.  He promises the great delight of Himself in His fullness when we do!  I am a fool not to do that.  The world promises much, but the pleasures of sin are a cheap thrill that leave us emptier than before we indulged.  It is like trying to quench your thirst by drinking water from the ocean—the more you swallow, the thirstier you become—and it leads to madness and death.  Only God can satisfy our soul—and He does it to overflow!  He gives rivers of living water flowing from our innermost being.  Lord, forgive us for our unfaithfulness.  Renew our focus on You as we repent of our carnal distractions.  Today, we set our heart on You alone!  Let us be “all in.”
