was determined to seek God. It wasn't just his need or external
circumstances that caused him to seek God; his heart also told him to
"seek God's face!"
Response and Action:
will seek God with all my heart. I do not want to be a person who
seeks God only in times of need. I want a heart that desires to draw
near to God so that I am ready for difficult situations. I will seek
God through prayer, through the Scriptures, through fellowship with
others who seek him, and through every true and beautiful thing in the
world around me.
God, help me to seek you with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Show yourself to me through your word, your people, your promises,
and all that is beautiful and true. Help me to desire and delight in
your will and to walk in your ways to the glory of your Name. Through
Christ, I pray. Amen.
Spiritual Formation Verses:
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on
things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set
your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and
your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
