Let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
This verse is what the Lord gave to me this morning during my devotions. I am becoming more and more aware how much I need to be in His presence everyday. It amazes me that I get to spend time with the God of the universe and find out what He has to tell me. It may just be a word of encouragement. He may tell me something to teach me something or to help me. It could be a step I need to take, might be a word for some else. Whatever it is I never take a single verse I get from My heavenly Father for granted. The most special thing about me wanting to draw near to God, is that He longs and loves to draw near to me. He delights to be connected to His children.
I have found that the more I draw near to God and feed on His word, the more and more I want it, and not only want it but need it. Its kinda relates to drinking water. I use to pick anything else over water. I thought water was boring. I started drinking it cause its good for you. The more I drank it, the more and more I began to want it. Now its something I enjoy to drink. It’s the same thing with reading your bible, once you start and make it a habit the more you want it.
