‘During these seventy years of exile, when you fasted and mourned in the summer and in early autumn, was it really for me that you were fasting?’ (Zechariah 7:5, NLT)
When we’re going through times of “exile”, we’re at a place we don’t want to be, in a situation we would rather not be in, experiencing results of choices we have made – do we actually seek God and look to him, or, do we try to work a “formula” that will get us out of the situation we’re in.
Am I seeking God or seeking to use God? Am I seeking God or seeking his favor?
Father, help me to get to know you more intimately during this season of my life, regardless of the outcome I desire.
