“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father; and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought.” 1 Chronicles 28:9.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: 1 Kings 1:1, 1 Chronicles 28, Psalm 91, and 1 Thessalonians 5.
Great words from a father to his son.
Great words for any of us, as well.
Our commitment to God must be genuine. The twice a week “fill-ups” are not enough. Our approach must be continual. We do not ever want to be away from Him.
I want, also, to be open-minded to what He wants me to do. His plans may involve continuing as I have been going or they could involve a chance of course, a completely new direction. I must actively seek His Will.
God knows what I can do….and can’t do. He knows the settings I will represent Him best in. I want to be in those places!
My relationship to Him must be authentic. I will never fool Him. He knows what I think!
“Lord, I need You every second. I want to always be pleasing You. Prick my conscience when I am missing what You want me to do or doing something You want me to stop doing. I must get my relationship with You right. Help me, I beg, to do this. I love You, Lord.”
Our Father is giving us some good advice. Will we heed it?
