[The Lord said,] “In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” JEREMIAH 29:12-13
Charles Finney was in a wrestling match with his own soul to give his heart to God. He resolved one Sunday in 1821 to settle the question of his salvation once and for all, before all other concerns in his life, and he spent days trying to pray and grasp the truth of the gospel. The next Wednesday, on his way to the office, he heard an inward voice: What are you waiting for? Are you endeavoring to earn a righteousness of your own? Immediately, he saw the fullness of the atonement of Christ. And later, while on his knees before God, yet worried that someone might see him, a passage of Scripture “seemed to drop” into his mind —the promise of Jeremiah 29:13 that those who seek God wholeheartedly will find Him. Finney had vowed to give his heart to God, and the verse assured him that his vow could be fulfilled and his gift would be accepted. He suddenly saw his faith as a matter of the will and not of the intellect. Over the next few days, he experienced the presence of Jesus and the love of God in profoundly personal ways.
