Time is Short

Child, your appetite should be after spiritual things. 

Fix your eyes on Jesus allow his strength to be yours. Time is short. 

Come into subjection to the Son so you might shine forth with His joy most abundantly. 

Seek not to do and be busy but seek your Lord who eagerly awaits communion with you "Come back/come away my beloved." And I shall lift you above the darts of the enemy and desert of dryness of your soul. Be refreshed in Jesus who lives in you. Selah.

We see His graciousness and kindness even when He is disciplining us. I was being disciplined when I heard the Lord whispering this to my heart and yet felt so motivated and encouraged by His caring attitude and reminders of the provision which was there. Scripture encourages us to seek out God – we know that we need Him. We need to seek Him with everything that is in us. Out of the desert and into His most loving arms!

But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul. (NIV)

The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. (NIV)

[ A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah. ] O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. (NIV)

Prayer: Dear Lord, it is no wonder that David was a man after Your own heart. Please help us to have that seeking focus and not get distracted by externals. AMEN
