With All Your Heart

“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

Genesis 12:2-3 (NIV)

I want to draw your attention to God's promise to Abraham in this passage. I also want to remind you that Abraham did not know God before this call. His parents, especially his father Terah, served other gods. We find it in Joshua 24:2. He therefore had every reason not to believe in God. But despite his father's idolatry, he chooses to believe that there is a God even if he does not see Him. Such thinking earned him the attention of God.

Although it is true that Abraham believed in his heart that there was a true God, he could interpret His voice as coming from his father's gods. But despite his uncertainty, he chose to respond positively to God's call because he had faith in a God he did not know. No doubt he said to himself: "Here at last is the God I am looking for, a God who speaks. My father's gods never speak." Whatever his reason for responding, we can understand that Abraham was seeking God with all his heart. He had a desire to know Him and have a personal relationship with Him. For this, God revealed himself to him.

If Abraham, who had neither Bible nor documents to tell him about the existence of God and His promises, had sought Him with all his heart to the point that God revealed Himself to him, then you too can benefit from this promise. However, if after years of conversion and all these biblical versions available to you, God has still not revealed Himself to you, it is simply because you are not really seeking Him with all your heart or, if you seek Him, it is to benefit from His blessings.

This is what God promises us: “You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
