CONSIDER THIS: PURSUIT

 .”With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from Your commandments….Psalm 119:10

CONSIDER THIS: Man does not seek after God, the Bible says so. It is God Who pursues us, until we either respond or reject Him. In that case, how can David (who wrote Psalm 119 under the Power of the Holy Spirit) say that “I have sought thee”? How can we in our lost condition “seek God”? We simply cannot. Initially, it is the Lord Who seeks us out, gives us a clear view of Himself and then calls us to Salvation. After conversion, when He embeds His Holy Spirit in us, our spirit man then begins which should be a life-long pursuit of the Person and Character of God, in Christ.

ACTION: Looking at the Webster’s dictionary definition of the word “Pursuit”, we find the following synonyms: chasing, following, seeking, hounding, tracking, pursuing etc….all active and almost aggressive verbs. This is how we are to love God and it is the very first commandment (Love the Lord with all your heart, all your soul and all your strength – Jesus 33 AD) Do you and I love God like this? Can we say with confidence that we press in daily to know Him better through prayer, supplication and the washing of the Word? The majority of us do not. Today, our assignment, so to speak, is to literally search our hearts to first, be assured of our identity in Christ and secondly, we need to embark on a consistent plan for becoming a true worshiper in Church, in lifestyle and in Truth….in an extremely proactive way. Apart from prayer, a great exercise would be to tune out the Oldies or Top 40 Secular radio station, and put on a worship CD in our cars, while going through one of those Daily One Year Bibles. THIS is the start of one major breakthrough in the pursuit of the Lord and Kingdom lifestyle.

Pray now: Father, in Jesus’ Name, I seek to not just acknowledge Your Manifest Presence but Your to dwell/abide/remain daily connected to You, in Your Power, oh Lord, and I pray for a burning passion in my soul, the clear pathway to holiness and an everlasting longing to persevere until the end, even when I do not feel like it. Lord give the resolve, strength and the heart to go on in prayer, the Bible and deeds along with the spiritual blinders I need to lessen my tendency when I am prone to wander off into a rabbit trail and trap set by the world. Thank You Lord for Your search and rescue mission for my soul, help me to pursue You and Your Word, daily, in Jesus’ Name amen.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
