More of You or more of me?
I feel like we’re in a time where we have to choose. Do we want more of God? If we do, then it’s time to seek Him, to really seek Him. He has to be first. Seek Him with all your heart and you’ll find Him.
” But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29
It’s easy to choose more of ourselves instead of Him. We live in a culture that tells us we can have whatever we want when we want it. That we should want it all. And we should want it now. I find that the more you give up worldly things, and fleshly desires the closer you come to God, and honestly all those things fall to the side. Nothing compares to God, and His presence.
Last night a group of girls got together to just worship God, to praise Him, to dance, and I kept getting the words that we are chosen. God has chosen you. He has a plan for you. He loves you. You are wanted. You are needed. Isn’t that great?
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.” Jeremiah 29:11-14
