“Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. — Luke 13:24
Many believe they are Christians and yet do not know the Lord God at all. Christianity doesn’t just come naturally. It is something we need to seek, strive for. Ask God to give you a yearning for His word, a thirst for Him — to know Him more intimately everyday. The road is narrow and so is the door. Seek while He can be found before the door is forever closed because we are not ready when the Bridegroom returns.
Continually seeking Him,
Please read the rest of Luke 13. Be ready and know Him intimately. It is worth the striving.
[ The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God. ] [ A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. ] O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. — Psalm 63:1
Have you been there? In a dry and weary land? I know I have. Unexplained weariness, trouble focusing, no motivation. The day, week, month just seem dry. No real explanation. The presence of God seems distant although you know better than that.
Why do you know better? Because you believe in the Word of God that tells you so. Refreshment comes when you remind yourself that “God, You are my God”. Then surrender to the thirst of the soul and yearning of the flesh to be restored to fellowship with the Almighty God. Seek Him earnestly and He will be found and you will be satisfied.
