Devotional Tea 30: Seek His Heart

Scripture: Psalm 103:7 (NIV)

He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel.

The primary object of prayer is to know God better; we and our needs should come second. (Florence Allshorn)
A lot of people are so consumed with that which they seek, they miss God Himself. That is why people crowd miracle centers, irrespective of the life of their progenitors. Supposed Christians will do outrageous things all in the name of miracles. Rather than seek God, rather than looking up to Jesus, their faces are set, like a flint, towards the miracle. They have neglected the giver in search of the gift. Like the Israelites, who left Egypt, they disqualify themselves from entering into the Promised Land.

Not so is the upward way. Not so is the way of life. Our blessings are not found outside of God, but rather in God. He is the one we seek, not for the blessings, but for He Himself. The blessings are a byproduct of our worship; they are not the main focus. God is looking for worshippers such as Abraham, Moses, and David. People, He can call a friend. People, He can call, “those after His heart.” Can He find one in you?

Further Reading: Numbers 12:4-8; 1 Samuel 13:14; Jeremiah 29:13; Psalm 27:8; Acts 13:22; Matthew 6:33; John 4:24

Prayer: Lord, teach me the way and cause me to come into the holy of holies. May I NEVER be satisfied with anything less.
