God Thinking LXII - You Will Make A Decision Today 1

Psalms 63:1
1.  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;

Lamentations 3:24-25
24.  The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25.  The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

1 Chronicles 28:9
9.  And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee;

To seek after God and not find Him, not only in the quiet of meditation, but also in the noise of the day, is proof of how distanced we have become from a pure and holy life.

God has a more difficult task in finding you that you do of finding God.

In your busied life, you manage to be unavailable.  God is always available, but you make yourself unavailable by your actions.

You have managed to disassociate with the never changing Spirit world, for a moment of attention from the ever changing material world.

I am going to help you make some crucial decisions in your life today, because the teaching of the truth always weeds out the heart.

In your heart, you will make a decision today.

When God speaks to your heart, one of three things happen:
         1              You remain unchanged - unmoved by God’s Word for
you, not at all stirred up, encouraged or empowered - the true sign of cultural or carnal Christianity.        

Or when God speaks to your heart:
2      You turn away and do not let what God said to become true in you, even though you hear the voice of God - even though you know it is right - even though you know that God is dealing with you for our own benefit - even though you know the consequences of not adhering to what God is saying is devastating - you turn away.

Or when God speaks to your heart:
3     You are drawn closer.
