Sense of Achievement
“As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.”
– Psalm 17:15 (NIV)
We most times tend to act like the sign of our true faith are the successes, blessings and increases which God gives us. We like literarily live for those moments and wear them proudly as badges of honor of our walk with God.
But in all of the wonderful things that God has done, and despite the great expectations that you have and focus on, you need to remind yourself today that for God, relationship with Him is more important.
All the conquered lands and raised trophies should not take the place of a rich, real and loving relationship with the Lord.
Where are the moments of quiet devotion?….not just prayers.
How much of the time in prayer is spent worshiping and asking for more of God?
When you fast, why do you do it? Is it so your spirit may be infused with more of God or maybe you think that by doing it, you will somehow ingratiate God to do something for you?
To David, his sense of achievement and satisfaction came from simply looking at the face of His Savior. Satisfaction to him would be waking up looking like his redeemer.
Beholding His face will change you, restore passion and help you become more
like God. Isn’t that what true living is all about?
Yes it is.
Dear Lord! Help me to recognize what really and truly is your heartbeat. Help me to put you first in all I do and help me to get my priorities right. As you bless me and promote me, help me to realize that only one thing really matters, YOU!
