“Then they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD, the God of their ancestors, with all their heart and soul. – They shouted out their oath of loyalty to the LORD with trumpets blaring and rams’ horns sounding. All in Judah were happy about this covenant, for they had entered into it with all their heart. They earnestly sought after God, and they found him.”
2 Chronicles 15:12, 14-15 (NLT)

Desire is a key factor in our walk with God. In today’s passage we see the how excited the Hebrews were about living for God. They entered into a covenant to know God with all their heart and soul. That is how God wants us to desire Him. He wants us to long for His fellowship. He wants us to desire Him above everything else. And the exciting fact is that it is God himself that helps us with our desires. In “Desiring God’s Will”, David Brenner writes, “Hunger for God will not go unanswered, because it is a gift from God. Our longing is already an answer from our heart as it is stirred by God’s Spirit. No one who seeks God fails to find God, because she or he is already found by God. In seeking we are found. In longing we express God’s desire, God’s longing evoking our own.” John wrote, “We love him, because he first loved us.” How marvelous, how mysterious. We desire God because He desires us. Today, joyfully set your heart toward Him. Desire His fellowship, desire His love, desire His Lordship.

Father, today I desire to seek You with all my heart. I desire to know You, to love You and to live for You. Help me to this end I pray.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
