For the Jews to ask, “Where is Jehovah?” would have meant seeking divine guidance when faced with decisions, both major and minor. The Jews at that time did not do so. But after the desolation of Jerusalem and their return from Babylon, they were to ‘seek Jehovah’ and ‘search for him.’ By so doing, they would be able to find him and come to know his ways. (Jeremiah 29:13, 14.) How could they do that? One way was by approaching God in sincere prayer, asking for his direction.
