Have you ever sat down and considered whatâ€™s important in your life? What do you consider to be vital or a necessity? What canâ€™t you live without? Most of us would say food, water and shelter. Yes, you need those things to exist, but we canâ€™t really live unless our minds and hearts are set on seeking the Lord who is the giver of life.Â
Sure, you can exist without a knowledge of God, but you canâ€™t live without Him giving you the breath you need to stay alive, but if thatâ€™s all you want from God whatâ€™s the point? He has much more in store for you. Besides, you are called to more than just mere existence; you are called to live â€” to thrive â€” to enjoy your life abundantly!
Today, set your mind beyond mere existence, set your heart on seeking the Lord for all He has for you! Write down your needs and wants, match them up to Godâ€™s promises in scriptures, commit them to memory. Whenever you can, think about those verses. Meditate on God and His infinite love. When you see the Lord as a vital necessity in and for your life, you will truly live and enjoy the abundant life He has in store for you! Hallelujah!
â€œSet your mind and heart to seek (inquire of and require as your vital necessity) the Lord your Godâ€¦â€(1 Chronicles 22:19, AMPC)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I choose to set my mind on You. Father, I need You not just for existence, but to truly live, therefore I seek You with my whole heart. God, please show me Your love and character today as You meet my needs and supply my wants. Lord, show me Your ways that I may walk and live close to You, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
