devotion by Sis. Bala Samson
Monday, Jun 17, 2019

I got an email that said, ‘ sister, since I had not received your mail, I have been checking the inbox every two hours and now I received it with the exact words that I needed.’  Hey girl, you pulled my heartstrings with those words, it’s past 9 pm now as I sit to type this message today because I know someone out there is checking and rechecking…..

 

David sings “ O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.” (Psalm 63:1)

 

How many of us today would pursue God this way? Are you ready to forsake everything and anything for God? I am truly floored by David’s passion as he says, “My flesh longs for you”! It’s like saying, “I can’t live without You." Have any of us ever been this serious about our pursuit of God? Has going hard after God become as important to us as water is to someone dying of thirst? Let me ask you today, what do you think would happen to you if you start pursuing God?

 

You would: pray more • fast more • read Bible more • love others more • forgive others more • give more to God • have more burden for the lost • serve more….To put it in a nutshell, when the ‘real thing’ hits you, that is REVIVAL! Your life would never be the same after this.  David wrote this psalm - "When he was in the Desert of Judah." David knew all too well where he was–in a desert place, a wilderness, yet, from here, his heart desires for God! No wonder God loved his heart! Above all, God wants his children to desire, crave and long for Him! Do you have this hot passion for God today?

 

I remember years back, while my children were still very young and I was working those days as an Executive Secretary for a multinational bank, I would wait for my children to sleep and in the quietness of the night, I would sit and read my Bible. Merlin Carothers author of “Prison to Praise” says about his first experience of reading the Bible as “it was even better than jumping off an aero plane with a parachute.” I felt the same as I read the Bible. I wanted ‘more’ of Him! As a mother of two children, after rocking my little baby son to sleep, my daughter safely tucked into the bed, I would now spend time praying and reading the Bible;all through the day, I had been longing for this moment to be alone with the Lord. I could feel the wonderful Presence of the Lord almost engulfing me and I would sit like that, praying for endless hours!
