Really grateful to have this verse reminded to my heart today. How often do we forget to seek God above all, and tend to seek our own desires?
it’s not wrong to want things like a nice house, a soul mate, make ups, any other hobbies, etc… but the word “seek” has more meaning beyond that.
Seek means to really crave for, looking earnestly for
Are we seeking God the way we suppose to?
If not, then repent and come back
Just come back.. for He said : “Return to Me, for I have redeemed you” Isaiah 44:22
If we admit our sins, He is faithful, He will forgive our sins, and PURIFY us from ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
Trust God to give us “a new heart”, a God’s willing heart, not a self willing heart (Ezekiel 36:26)
If we are to obey His Word, then we have this promise:
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matt 6:33)
Lord, forgive our sins as we seek our desires of things and more things, popularity after popularity, greediness after greediness. Cleanse our sins and purify us by Your blood Jesus, give us a God’s willing heart instead of self willing heart. As psalmist said: take me not away from Thy presence oh Lord, take not Thy Holy Spirit from me, restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation, and renew a right spirit within me.
teach us to come back to You, for we know only You can fulfill our deepest desires, not things, not people, not even our dearest ones. And let us experience delight in You, enjoy You for who You are, and have our needs fulfilled, as You give us what You really want us to have. For You are merciful, and good. In Jesus Name, we pray, Amen.
Have a very fulfilled day ^^
