Today’s Text: ” Psalm 1: 1 – 3
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.”
In the depth of my soul today, there is a longing… A longing for purity and freedom… Purity in the sense of a conscious awareness of the power and Presence of God. Freedom in the sense of the enabling, security of the Holy Spirit’s power.
This longing is rooted in my deep desire to know God and to be restored into communion with Him. In my heart is a longing to be accepted and reconciled to a life that is bigger than life itself. It is longing that God Himself has placed within each of us. A longing that only He can fill. Today, I am acutely aware of my longing for the heart of God…
The good news is that this longing is an indication of God’s active Presence in my life. Tenderly, gently the Spirit of God is drawing me to Christ and awakening in my heart, my need for a deeper communion. In and of myself, I do not have these feelings of desire for godliness. But today, I sense God’s willingness and ability to meet and surpass my wildest expectations.
Thank You, Father for drawing me closer to You this day. May you be honoured in our communion. Lead me and teach me. Lift me and embrace my soul today that I may dance through life in the security of Your Steadfast Love.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
