I feel empty, hungry, starving. My stomach is growling and my heart is crying out for more. My soul begs to be more like Jesus. I am starving for more and have decided to lean in and get more intentional about my spiritual life. I am praying for the kind of personal renewal that can only be attributed to the power of God.
Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you today knowing that all power is in Your hand. I know that you are the Lord and that you care for your people. I am happy that you are my Father and I have the privilege to come to you at any time. This morning I acknowledge you as the Creator and the Master of all things. I come to you with confidence and boldness knowing that you hear me. As I come I ask that if there is sin in my life that will hinder my prayer from being answered I ask that you will cleanse and purify my heart.
For every season of life’s journey… Pursuing God is such an important part. Life gets busy and I sometimes get distracted.
For the past three months my spirit has been uneasy, I have had this inexplicable hunger and thirst for God. I’ve turned to Him to fill the void in my heart. I am determined to know the truth about His sovereignty and power and know who I am.
The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
The Psalmist proclaims that when God is our Shepherd, when God is the one who directs our lives, the one we trust and serve, then there is nothing lacking. The statement is a statement of faith – one that is bold and clear.
Psalm 102:25-27: “You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.”
At a time in my life where things seem to be changing on a day by day basis, it can be difficult to remember that I believe in a God who is unchanging in his love, grace, and sovereign direction for my life. But ultimately, there’s one thing I know for certain – God’s Word stands true and is always there to remind me of who He is even when my memory fails me.
God’s word tells me that the things He created and set in place are going to change, but He himself will not. Even when the foundations of the earth and the heavens perish, God remains the same. He loves me, is for me, continues to watch over me, and even through I face challenges of all sorts daily, He is pursuing me.
There are two truths that I want to grab a hold of and not let go of during this time.
To constantly remember that God’s love for me is unchanging and unconditional, even when my love for him tends to flow from a place of how I’m feeling at that particular moment and what my circumstances look like.To know that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
