instill a desire for His presence…

As you strive to live with an ongoing, unending awareness of God’s presence, instill a desire for His presence just in the way that David desires to dwell in God’s presence in Psalms 62 and 27.

Psalms 27

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;whom shall I fear?The Lord is the stronghold of my life;of whom shall I be afraid?2When evildoers assail meto eat up my flesh,my adversaries and foes,it is they who stumble and fall.3 Though an army encamp against me,my heart shall not fear;though war arise against me,yet I will be confident.4 One thing have I asked of the Lord,that will I seek after:that I may dwell in the house of the Lordall the days of my life,to gaze upon the beauty of the Lordand to inquire in his temple.5 For he will hide me in his shelterin the day of trouble;he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;he will lift me high upon a rock.6 And now my head shall be lifted upabove my enemies all around me,and I will offer in his tentsacrifices with shouts of joy;I will sing and make melody to the Lord.7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;be gracious to me and answer me!8 You have said, “Seek my face.”My heart says to you,“Your face, Lord, do I seek.”9 Hide not your face from me.Turn not your servant away in anger,O you who have been my help.Cast me not off; forsake me not,O God of my salvation!10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,but the Lord will take me in.11 Teach me your way, O Lord,and lead me on a level pathbecause of my enemies.12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;for false witnesses have risen against me,and they breathe out violence.13 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lordin the land of the living!14 Wait for the Lord;be strong, and let your heart take courage;wait for the Lord!

My mouth, my heart!

‚ÄčLet the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. ~ Psalm 19:14 (ESV)

Sin will always take you further than you intended to go, keep you longer than you intended to stay & will always, always cost you more than you intended to pay!!

Lord and Master, I freely give you my heart and my mouth today! I’m asking that you take them both and align them with Your perfect will and plan for my life. Send your Holy Spirit to reside in me this day for Your glory. Let others clearly see You in my journey. I ask these things in Your Precious Son’s Mighty Name, Amen!!

Aligning…OnPurpose!!
