Faith Is Not always Easy!

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12 NLT)

Searching for God

Psalm 63 is a Psalm of King David, regarding a time when he was in the wilderness of Judah. “O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.”  (Psalm 63:1 NLT)

David was running from his own son, Absalom, who drove his dad, King David, out of Jerusalem, out of his palace, away from the temple, and out into the wilderness. God used this experience to bring out the best of David in the worst of times.

There have been times in my life that I, like David, have cried out for God’s presence and help. He is always faithful, always present. I have discovered that being hungry for His presence and desiring to be in the presence of the Lord on a daily basis should be our greatest priority… just to be with Him and seek His presence with all our hearts. Jesus wants to make the presence of God real to us.

 “For in him we live and move and exist." (Acts 17:28 NLT)

I’m glad I belong to God. He is faithful. He is good.
