Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When was the last time you yearningly searched after God? I'm not talking about an obscure theological insight about God you got from a preacher or another best-selling book about God. When was the last time you sought after the Father so that you could know him better, recognize his nearness to you, and appreciate him more? Let's open our hearts and go on the great quest to find God. Like the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32), we will find he's waiting and watching for us to come home!

My Prayer...

Precious Heavenly Father, majestic in glory, awesome in might, and ever near with your loving presence, please bless me with a deeper and more personal knowledge and experience of you in my life. I want to know you even as I am known by you (1 Corinthians 13:12; 1 John 3:1-3). Until the day I can see you face to face in glory, please draw me closer and closer to you as you make your presence known in my life. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
