SEEKING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEART
I have previously shown that any Christian who desires to may at any time experience a radical spiritual renaissance, and this altogether independent of the attitude of his fellow Christians.
The important question now is, How? Well, here are some suggestions which anyone can follow and which, I am convinced, will result in a wonderfully improved Christian life.
1. Get thoroughly dissatisfied with yourself. Complacency is the deadly enemy of spiritual progress. The contented soul is the stagnant soul. When speaking of earthly goods Paul could say, “I have learned to be content” (Philippians 4:11); but when referring to his spiritual life he testified, “I press on toward the goal” (3:14). “So stir up the gift of God that is in thee” (2 Timothy 1:6, KJV).
2. Set your face like a flint toward a sweeping transformation of your life. Timid experimenters are tagged for failure before they start. We must throw our whole soul into our desire for God. “The kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it” (Matthew 11:12).
Today’s Devotional was originally found in the writings from A.W. Tozer from the following book:
The Size of the Soul
Chapter 5 – What About Revival?–Part IV: How to Have a Personal Revival
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
A holy dissatisfaction arises when we look in the mirror of God’s Word. What He has for us is far beyond what we have so far experienced. But when we seek to know God with all our heart, He will be found.
Lord, I want to grow not just tomorrow or in the the years ahead but now, today. Show me what it means to seek You with all my heart.
