“I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.”Psalm 119:10 NIV
The Lord desires those who will seek Him with their whole heart. This is what made king David an incredible king. He sought the Lord and His heart remained faithful to the Lord. Though he made mistakes he never turned to the worship of false idols.
Today the Lord seeks those upon the earth who will seek Him with their whole heart. He seeks those who will make their pursuit of Him the one obsession of their lives. When Jesus calls someone it is not a call to follow Him casually. When the Lord calls someone to follow Him He calls them to lay down their very life.
But we may ask how can we truly be able to lay down our lives. The answer is found in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will enable and empower us for every purpose of God’s kingdom. This is what sets us apart from the rest of the world. We must develop deep intimacy with the Lord and spend time in His presence daily. We must remember that this life is but a breath when compared to eternity.
