Desire To Seek Him
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4
You know you are growing when you not only seek God because it is one of his requirements but that you desire to seek him because you want to be close to him and dwell in his house forever. The only way we are going to get everything we need is by desiring to be in his presence and then actually being in his presence. David made sure that he stayed in his presence. He knew that everything he ever needed was in God.
Do you know that everything you need is in God? All the things we ask for on a daily of others, people that we deal with on a daily basis ,God can do just by us simply inquiring to be in his presence. I love the song by Out of Eden titled better is one day in your courts than a thousand else where. There is fullness of Joy in his presence! That means complete to the rim. If you are tonight trying to get a million things figured out and you are not sure how and when these things are going to be done, just get in his presence and I can assure you that you will find everything you need. David made this one thing something he asked for. I am sure he needed a lot of other things but the one thing he asked for was something that was going to actually change his entire circumstance. He was not going to just give him a temporary fix but it was going to continually help in every area of his life.
Seek, Inquire, Meditate, and Consider today!
