Thoughts Of Devotion:
In reading this, I wonder, what is it that God tells us this day? What is it that the Holy Spirit says to us all? We can hear his voice saying, Seek Me! Seek Me! Seek Me! This is the heartbeat of the Lord to us. His arms of mercy and love are extended to all those who want to have an intimate relationship with Him. The call of the Lord toward us is continuous and durable. Every day He calls us to come to Him and have an encounter within the secret place.
On this day the Holy Spirit is convicting us and calling us to get closer to Him. In James 4: 5 a question we must answer is, “do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously?” What a blessing that the Holy Spirit longs to be with us and wants to spend quality time with each of us. He wants to give us life and life in abundance, freshness in his presence. If we seek him, certainly He will give us life, and we will live. Nothing compares to the life God gives us!
Knowing this, why not seek the Lord? If all that the Lord gives us is life, take the invitation! But be assured that as we seek Him, it will take action, effort, and obedience on our part. Pray on this day that the Lord will give life we so badly need. Recognize that now is the time of God to experience another level of life found only in his presence, and in an environment where his glory is real. We must choose life and blessing! In Deuteronomy 30:19 we remember this, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”
2 Chronicles 15:2 (NKJV) ― 2 And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord iswith you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.
Deuteronomy 30:19 (NKJV) 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;
Amos 5:4 (NKJV) ― 4 For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel: “Seek Me and live;
Ezekiel 37:14 (NKJV) ― 14 I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it,” says the Lord.’”
Isaiah 38:16 (NKJV) ― 16 O Lord, by these things men live; And in all these things is the life of my spirit;
So You will restore me and make me live.
