But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:29
In this chapter, Moses foretells that Israel will have great success.
Then they’ll get complacent.
Idols will take their attention and their hearts.
And God will remove them from the land as judgment.
But from there…
From the foreign lands where they are living under God’s judgment…
From there you will seek the LORD your God.
Why are we that way?
Why don’t we seek God in our success?
Why don’t we seek God when we live in His abundance?
Why don’t we seek Him when He is fulfilling His promises to us?
Why do other things catch our eyes, and draw us away?
Why don’t we learn from Israel’s mistakes?
