More of God is what I want. More and More of Him. Are you wondering what is going to happen to your future? Do you fear failing or maybe your life is or threatened to falling apart? There is only one answer to security, peace and love. His love never fails. His name is Jesus. The more you seek Him the more you will find Him.
Seek Him with all your heart and soul (Deuteronomy 4:29). God wants us to get to know Him. I have found out through the years of serving Him, He desired a personal relationship with me. Jeremiah 29:13 states,” You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” This is my goal for 2018.
People go to church or serve on His behalf all the time, but feel they don’t know how or need to know Him. Evidence you know Him- your desire is praying, reading the Bible or fellow-shipping with Him daily. You love people around you more because as you get closer to Him, God is Love. This is what I am striving for in my life.
Did you know there is a scripture that says, “ 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven..23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ (Matthew 7:21,23 NIV)
There is a historical record in the Bible about two sisters, Mary and Martha. (Luke 10:39-42 NIV)– “ …a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” The greater…spending personal time with Him.
In this day with so much uncertainty, we need a Savior and to know God is our helper, provider and wants us to feel safe and secure. What are you looking for in 2018 and years to come? Maybe you need more of Jesus too. Well, we have the answer on how to know Him and it is up to us to put it into action.
I am determined to spend more time at His feet and in His Word. I believe this will be one of my best years in fulfilling His Will for my life. How can I be so sure? I plan on spending time with Him and knowing what He wants from me, according to the Bible. Thereby, when I need an answered prayer, I have laid the ground work to receive one. I can call on Him having confidence He has heard my prayer, He knows me, and will do what is in His perfect Will.
