Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
1 Chronicle 16:10
We get to rejoice because we seek the Lord. We get to show the joy in our lives as a result of seeking Him.
When you are in a car driving around, and you look out the window, you are simply watching the world pass you by. But when you are in a car, driving to a specific restaurant looking for the best dumplings in town, you are seeking.
I guess what I am trying to say is that I hope we are using our time in our daily life to seek to Lord. I hope we aren’t driving around town simply looking at the blessings in our lives. Looking at the people in our lives. Looking at the opportunities as they just pass us by.
Instead, I hope we use our time to seek the Lord. Look for his essence in everything he touches. Feel His embrace when we need it; the spread is love when we can. I hope we are seeking him in our passions, hobbies, and projects. I hope we are seeking His console in our finances. I hope we are seeking His strength in our bodies.
When we seek the Lord with our whole hearts, we can rejoice. Because everything is going to be okay, and the best is yet to come.
Father God, thank you for this beautiful Wednesday. Lord, today we seek you. We are going to look for your face in everything we do. May we see you in traffic, may we feel you as we drop our kids off at school, or as we meet with our clients on zoom. May we seek your embrace when we need it and seek your love so that we can share it. Lord, as a community, we lift those in prayer who need it most. Today we pray for Donna and her husband. Lord, you know what they need. It is in your Holy name that we pray, AMEN!
