This Could Be a Very Good Day!

Today can be different from yesterday.
Spending time with God could make this day the best day of your life!

Psalm 27:8 (NIV)

My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, LORD, I will seek.

Psalm 27:8 (Amplified Bible) / for meditation purposes (I love this!)
You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word].

I want to seek God’s presence as if I couldn’t live without it.

What about you?

Feeling stressed due to a heavy schedule? Or has life become overwhelming with illness or other bad news? Do you need guidance or simply want to feel His presence?

Consider having a solid quiet time today by reading God’s Word and allowing the Holy Spirit speak to your heart about the Bible passages you read. Then throughout the day, meditate on those verses.

Then do it again tomorrow.

Prayer:
Father, You are worth the effort it takes to seek after You! But I know myself well enough to realize that sometimes I allow myself to become easily distracted from spending needed time with You. Forgive me for putting other things ahead of You. Help me realize how vital You and Your presence are to me. I come to You now, seeking You. Please fill me with Your presence! Amen.

Please leave a comment (using a pseudonym, if you want) letting me know how you’re doing, or how I can pray for you.

  1. I think your opening line says it all...

    " This Could Be a Very Good Day!
    Today can be different from yesterday.
    Spending time with God could make this day the best day of your life!"

    And it is certainly a start to drawing near to God. May we not lose sight of our goal.

    1. Amen! Especially with all the craziness going on in the world (and sometimes in our personal lives), it is more important than ever to keep our daily quiet times as a priority.

      Thank you, Barbara, my most faithful fellow blogger, for stopping by! (And thank you for emailing me about the typo you found in this week's post - which I have since corrected!).
