Psalm 27:4 (KJV)
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
In a world where desires run wide and we are daily plugged by the pursuit of our desires, it is imperative to establish what exactly is important in life. For when the dust of life’s pursuit settles, we all shall stand before God to give an account of how we have lived here on earth.
We are all on a journey. It is important we understand and accept that daily someone ends their journey, others complete their assignments and depart from this World. The realities of life are ever-present with us and yet we often run wide with desires that have no coloration with who we truly are and what our assignments are here on God.
How much of your daily pursuit and desire is eternity driven? How much of your desires are Christcentric? How much of your desires and pursuits are reflective of your true self?
Oh, that we may speak like David after many pursuits of life, he declared what truly his desires are. To seek the Lord. To dwell in His presence.
Our world is engulfed in the darkness of all sorts and we who ought to be the Light has made less important the things that should be most important – living for Jesus Christ and making Him known. Have you checked your prayer lists of late? Does it not reveal to you where your heart is and what your true desires are?
There is a shifting going on now and we cannot afford not to pursue God in this season. Fruitfulness is a must and we must redefine what our pursuits are and why?
God is calling – are you listening? Does your heart throb for God and His purposes in your generation? Or are you just comfortable with the statuesque as though nothing is at stake?
We have one life to live here on earth, make the most of it. Be a God pursuer and align your desires with His and you shall have all other things added unto you. Stay fruitful.
