Lord, may nothing separate me from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me walk by the Word and not my feelings. Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided. Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words, and actions. And keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be.
Help me to embrace what
comes my way as an opportunity... rather than a personal inconvenience.
And finally, help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, 'Great is
your love toward me.'
You already see the ways I will fall
short and mess up. But right now, I consciously tuck Your whisper of
absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I recognize Your
love for me is not based on my performance. You love me warts and all.
But what's most amazing is that the Savior of
the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning. Lord, help me
to remember forever what a gift it is to sit with You like this in
stillness and quietness taking in the purity, comfort, peace, and the
transforming power of Your Holy Word by Your Holy Spirit.
In Jesus, Name, Amen!
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
"But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him
if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.
Jesus said to them, `Come away with me. Let us go alone to a quiet place and rest for a while.'
"I have not spoken in secret, In some dark land; I did not say to the
offspring of Jacob, 'Seek Me in a waste place'; I, the LORD, speak
righteousness, Declaring things that are upright.
“For thus says the LORD to the house of Israel, "Seek Me that you may live.”
