You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart


“What sorrow awaits my rebellious children,” says the LORD. “You make plans that are contrary to mine. You make alliances not directed by my Spirit, thus piling up your sins.
Isaiah 30:1

All day long I have held out my hands to an obstinate people, who walk in ways not good, pursuing their own imaginations–
Isaiah 65:2

But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices.
Psalm 81:11-12

But concerning Israel he says, “All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people.”
Romans 10:21

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.
Matthew 23:37

How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? Come and listen to my counsel. I’ll share my heart with you and make you wise.
Proverbs 1:22-23

The Cross of Christ

Christ made His way to the Cross with unstoppable determination like He walked on the waves of the sea. He strode on the waves of hate and the foaming anger of men as merely a means to achieve His purposes and reach His goal. Rome, Israel, kings, rulers and scheming priests – the wisdom of God in Christ made fools of them all like a father playing hide and seek with his 2 year old son. The special glory of Jesus Christ was the Cross. The only way to reveal His glory in its true character and substance was in the crimson drops of His own precious blood. Those blood drops are the alphabet from which God writes salvation and glory. O glory, hallelujah! Aren’t you glad? REINHARD BONNKE

May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Galatians 6:14

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death–even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
Philippians 2:8-10

If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine.
Matthew 10:38 (NLT)
