Choosing God Every Day
"The one thing I ask of the LORD - the thing I seek most - is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD's perfections and meditating in his Temple." -Psalm 27:4
Every day, we decide what we're going to do that day. We choose what to wear, what to have for breakfast, and we may make a to do list for that day to decide what needs to be accomplished. Every day also, we decide who we are serving - are we serving ourselves and our own desires, or are we serving God and what He desires?
Just as we choose our spouses over and over day after day over someone else, (if we are married), or choose every day to keep ourselves pure if we are not married, we have a choice to make before God: Will we put His will before our own? Even Jesus had to decide when He prayed, "Not My will, but Yours be done." (Luke 22:42)
David desired God most in His life. He prayed over and over that God would not take His presence from him as He did from Saul. David wanted God with him more than anything else - more than winning a battle, more than having great wealth - and God granted His request because his heart was set apart for Him. Even more so, God blessed him with wealth and military victories because David continued to choose Him, day after day.
Is your heart attuned toward God, each and every day? May we each strive to seek God first, and chose His will over our own, so that His will, love, and life can be manifest in our lives to the fullest extent. Let’s choose Him, every day!
