We look for love in all the wrong places. We seek after riches, or at least enough to pay our bills. We look to vacations to bring peace to our busy lives. Yet everything we search for is found in God.
Though he could live in a palace with gold gilded walls, he chose to live in our hearts, joined to our spirits, renewing our minds with his Word. King Davids success in battle was because of this one key: Ps 27:4 “One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I will look for: that I may live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to look upon the beauty of the Lord, and to worship in His holy house.” He took God everywhere with him, he wouldn’t move into battle without inquiring of him. Davids success was because of his relationship with the Lord.
Everyday, we leave God behind in the pages of his book of love, to pursue our own goals. Instead, we should hide his word deep in our hearts, meditate on it, seek to pursue HIM than the things we need will be given. If you need something, seek HIM. Just remember, God doesn’t work like we think he should. Don’t waste time looking for what you need when what you need is in the WHO that lives in you.
Father, You told me that I would find You if would seek after You with my whole heart. There is no greater gift than being in Your presence. You lead and guide me into all truth. I delight myself in Your ways. I worship You for You are a great and loving Father who cares greatly for me. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
