Before the Lord – Day 2

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.” Psalm 63:1-2

Desires can be cultivated and enhanced by investing my time, attention and ultimately my affection to a specific subject. While the list of things I desire is vast, I have a need to enhance my craving for fellowship with the Lord. Oh how I want set my affection on things above, not on things on the earth. I know the Lord loves me and I love Him. Yet, I should hunger and thirst for Him. I must spend less time seeking after my fleshly cravings and devote myself to know more of my Lord.

My prayer today:

My Father, increase my desire to know you. May worldly desires diminish as my longing for you grows.
