Do you long for Jesus? Is He the source of your passion? Or, do you run after other things? When I read the Psalms of King David, I see his passion and desire for God. He doesn't hold anything back! He laid his heart out for God and exalted Him like no other. When you lift God up, in worship and praise, as David did, He rewards you. David has the honor of being called a man after God's own heart, can that be said of you? I fall short of that honor daily. My heart desires to be that kind of worshiper, but the things of this world are a distraction and it pulls my attention in a different direction. David was chased by a mad man and he still managed to offer God His heart. We have no excuse for not giving Him our best and worshiping Him as He desires. Spend a little time with Jesus today. Pursue Him with the same passion you have for the other things you love. The reward is great and the honor is glorious!
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalms 63:1-4
