Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!
- 1 Chronicles 16:11 (ESV)
When it comes to your relationship with God, are you a full-time lover or part-time lover?
In order to walk in the fullness of what God has for you, you must seek His presence not just sometimes, but continually.
Just like with any intimate relationship, private time spent together is vital if it is to remain strong.
When you give the Lord your time, He will give you His strength.
You cannot find the kind of strength meant to sustain you in people, places, or things.
No human being can empower and refresh you like God can.
There is a good reason our souls can only be satisfied by God, for we were created to love Him and be loved by Him!
Are you feeling weak today? Do you feel as though there is an emptiness inside that needs to be made whole? Are you spiritually weary?
These are signs of your need for the Lord. He is gently drawing you back to Himself, where you belong. The more you practice dwelling in His presence, the more He is able to permeate you with His strength and peace.
When it comes to pursuing the Lord, keep in mind He doesn’t expect perfection from you, but persistency!
TODAY: Continually seek His presence and watch as He works in your heart!
“Heavenly Father, help me to never be a part-time lover in our relationship. I want to go deeper with you. You are the only one who can satisfy my soul and instill me with the strength I need. I choose to be persistent in my pursuit of you! Amen.”
