God promises that when we seek him, it will not be in vain. “[When} you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you,” God says through the prophet Jeremiah. “When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me” (Jer.29:13-14). The writer to the Hebrews declares, “[God] rewards those who seek him” (11:6).
Here is the central mystery of life with God: the way into it is simply by trusting in Jesus.
