Blessings From Seeking and Following The Lord
In review of Psalm 119:2 it says, “Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with their whole heart.
Blessings come to those who search for God and always does his will.
What this means to me:
I’m blessed when I keep His testimonies and seek Him with my whole heart.
Today’s verse from the beginning of Psalm 119 is a meditation on the beauty of God's Word and how it helps me stay pure and grow in faith.
I’m reminded this morning that if I begin to think life is defeating me, I can pray and seek the Lord’s face. When I do, He will point me in the direction I need to go. For He has promised to never leave me, or forsake me. And He will work things in my favor as I learn to lean on Him.
One practical step I can take to pray and seek God is to not turn on the radio or make phone calls when I get into the car, but just carefully listen for the voice of the Spirit. If God is trying to gently place you on a path of His choosing, the road less traveled... I have to be willing to listen and be led. In my commute to work I can tune out the distractions and focus on the Source of every blessing that has ever come my way.
God promises to go before me, like a guide on an Alaskan hike. I may want to walk right behind Him, in His immediate footsteps, so I don’t make any fatal errors. I’ll want to go exactly where He’s leading, and to where He says. This is the way to His blessings.
