Seeking God


O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You. Psalm 63:1



It is inspiring to watch people’s passion and dedication in pursuing their dreams. A young woman I know recently graduated from college in just three years, a task that took total commitment. A friend wanted a particular car, so he worked diligently baking and selling cakes until he reached his goal.


While it can be good to earnestly seek something of earthly value, there is a more important kind of seeking that we must all consider.


In desperation, struggling in a desert, King David wrote, “You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you” (Psalm 63:1). As David cried out to Him, God drew close to the weary king. David’s deep spiritual thirst for God could only be satisfied in His presence.


The king remembered meeting with God in His “sanctuary” (v 2), experiencing His all-conquering love (v 3), and praising Him day after day, finding true satisfaction only in Him that is not unlike enjoying a full and satisfying meal (v 4–5). Even during the night, he contemplated God’s greatness, recognizing His help and protection (v 6–7).


Today, the Holy Spirit convicts us to earnestly seek after God. As we cling to Him, in power and love, God holds us up with His strong right hand. By the leading of the Spirit, may we draw closer to the Maker of all good things.


Bible Reading

Psalm 63:1-8.

Prayer

Thank You, God, for drawing me to seek after You. To know You better. To love You more. To recognise Your greatness. I am so grateful for Your presence in my life. Amen.
