In my life I have witnessed many who are wandering. They once knew where they were going but life is off track and now they just wander around. As a believer this saddens my heart to see people go astray just to wander. My question in my head is always, “What are you looking for?”
What is out there in the world that is drawing you in? What is it? Lack of motivation maybe, trial and tribulations, offense, heartbreak, contentment or a series of rebellion could that be it? With this question in my head and heart I need to share with you something that I can see from the outer perspective. What I mean is that I”m not in your head. I’m not in your heart but I know who wants to be. I know what you are looking for.
You are looking for love. You are looking for peace. You are looking for help. You are looking for companianship. You are looking for mercy. You are looking for joy. You are looking for satisfaction and desire.
If those are the things we want, why do we look for them in the bar, in another person, in our homes, in our work enviroments, in the woods, in our phones or social media, and in our kids? Why? Because the enemy has you confused. He has you thinking that the things here on this earth are eternal.
The things here on this earth are made up of vapor but we believe they are made of gold. Gold is in the heavenlies only. There you will find a Savior, a redeemer, a restorer, a hope, a joy, a future, a helping hand, a grace delieverer, and a newfound motivation that drives you to love people more than tasks or things.
So I’m writing this to encourage you! Stop looking out there! Look in the Word of God, look in the church doors and look past the mistakes of people into the heart of God. There you will find all you need!
The Bible says, in James 5: 19-20 that if someone among you wanders away from the truth and is brought back you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back from wandering will save that person from death and bring about the forgiveness of many sins.
So what are you looking for? Ask yourself this question and humbly answer. I pray today that you will stop wandering and instead you will find the Lord today! He is there waiting for you. It just takes one humble answer.
