This was my daily reading for March 6.

Taken from GOD’S BEST SECRETS, Daily Devotional Meditations by Andrew Murray

THE DESIRE FOR GOD

“With my soul have I desired thee in the night. Isa 26:9

What is the chief thing, the greatest and most glorious that man can see or find upon earth? Nothing less than God Himself.

And what is the chief and the best and the most glorious thing that a man needs every day, and can do every day? Nothing less than to seek and know, and to love and to praise this glorious God. As glorious as God is, so is the glory which begins to work in the heart and life of the man who gives himself to live for God.

My brother, have you learnt what is the first and the greatest thing you have to do every day? Nothing less and nothing greater than to seek this God, to meet Him, to worship Him, to live for Him and for His glory. It is a great step in advance in the life of a Christian when he truly sees this and yields himself to consider fellowship with God every day as the chief end of his life.

Take time and ask whether this be not the truth, the highest wisdom and the one thing for which a Christian is above all to live – to know his God aright, and to love Him with his whole heart. Do believe that it is not only in very deed true, but that God Himself is most desirous that you should live thus for Him and will, in answer to prayer enable you to do so.

Begin to-day and take a word from God’s Book to speak to Him in stillness of soul.

“O God- Thou art my God: – early will I seek Thee: -my soul thirsteth for Thee, – my flesh longeth for Thee,-my soul followeth hard after Thee” (Pslxiii-!)

“I seek Thee with my whole heart” ( see Ps cxix.2)

Repeat these words in deep reverence and childlike longing till their spirit and power enter your heart; and wait upon God till you begin to realize what the blessedness is of thus meeting with Him. As you persevere you will learn to expect that the fear and the presence of God can abide with you through all the day.

“I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry” ( Ps xl.1)

    A word straight to my heart… a tired missionary sipping my 5 am coffee…a simple reminder that, “This is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ his son.”(Jn 17:3) Now I’m going to be alone with my Jesus. Thank you David.
