DEVOTION: “What do you want? Be definite in your seeking. God knows what you need. Set it in your minds that you will know the powers of the world to come. Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.(Matt. 7:7–8)
Seek. What is it we seek? Money, fame, peace, joy, happiness? Where does it end? Where does it begin?
Is God in the equation? Do we include Him in all of it? All of the seeking. All of the desires that we have.
It’s a good question to ask sometimes. We need to assess our dependence on Him to make sure we are continually leaning on Him and giving Him access to all of us. All of our life and all of our desires and needs.
Today. Take a minute and examine your desires and intentions. Are you being led by the Spirit? Or….is the Spirit taking a backseat as you take care of things “on your own?”
PRAYER: Pray that God would be in the middle of it all. In every decision. Every single one.
