In His Image

By   •   February 3

You were created in the image and likeness of God. You were made for God’s fellowship, and your heart can never be satisfied without His communion. Just as iron is attracted to a magnet, the soul in its state of hunger is drawn to God. Though you, like thousands of others, may feel in the state of sin that the world is more alluring and more to your liking, some day—perhaps even now as you read these words—you will acknowledge that there is something deep down inside you which cannot be satisfied by the alloy of earth. Then with David, the Psalmist who had sampled the delicacies of sin and had found them unsatisfying, you will say, “Oh God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.”

Go deeper: Listen to Billy Graham’s classic message, “Create in Me a Clean Heart”

Prayer for the day

How I long for You, God, yet so often my heart is drawn away from Your leading. Like David, I desire a clean heart.

    There are countless distractions offered by this world. Staying focused on what’s most important is essential. Try and find a quiet time alone with God in prayer every single day. It will go a long way towards knowing him better. Make the effort and you will feel the difference. As you draw closer to God, he will draw closer to you.

  2. Gerry says:

    Never become complacent. Each day requires new strength from the Lord. Pride or overconfidence in oneself is a sure path to disaster. Seek Gods guidance every single day. It is absolutely essential to stay on track.

      Amen, bro! Thank you, brother Gerry! We all need to remember that and be reminded to seek God’s face humbly, in sincerity, with our hearts ready and open to anything He may say and want from us, as God’s dearly beloved children!

      We will pray for you Marjorie to get your permanent residency. We realize how important this for you. My wife is Filipino and has been permanent for two years, now we are waiting another year for her citizenship exam.
