This Week At GracePoint Seek The Lord

Seek the Lord

Hi GracePoint Family,

Last night we had our monthly board meeting and I just want to say – we have a great leadership team of board members and staff. We are very fortunate to have been given Godly leaders with hearts that yearn for the Lord. As we came to the end of our time, we shared in a time of prayer together and I was reminded of a familiar passage of scripture to many of us.

In the book of Jeremiah, we read “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Here the Lord is speaking to us – that He has plans for us. But we do not know what those plans are. We first must do something to know what God’s plan and purpose is. Jeremiah continues, “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you…” The key to knowing God’s plans and purpose for us as individuals and as a church is through seeking Him in prayer. When we seek God will all of our heart, then we can know the heart of God and He will make His plans and purposes known. It is only through prayer that we can know what God’s vision for us is and how He wants us to fulfill it.

This week we continue our series All In and we will be taking a deeper look at prayer. I hope you will make plans to gather with us.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Phil
