“With all my heart I have sought You, [inquiring of You and longing for You];
Do not let me wander from Your commandments [neither through ignorance nor by willful disobedience].” (Psalm 119:10, AMP)
If you’re anything like me, you have this desperate desire to know God more intimately. And if He’s drawing you to Himself then you MOST DEFINITELY have this same longing for Jesus too.
A few months ago, I decided to get serious about seeking the Lord. So I google every scripture I could find on seeking God and printed them out. As I began to read through the packets I created, I began to realize (or rather it was revealed to me ) that seeking God meant learning and walking in His ways.
When we learn right from wrong (in His eyes) and what is true and what is not, we are walking with Him if we allow those laws and truth to govern our lives. But if we believe that we know God and are still walking in darkness, then we have deceived ourselves. We aren’t in fellowship with Him or His Son. We don’t even know them!
“Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.” ( 1 John 3:6)
Or “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” ( 1 John 1:5-7)
So, if you are seriously seeking the Lord, I encourage you to read all of Psalm 119 because here we find David (a man after God’s own heart) loving God through learning and obeying His law.
With love, Brandi
