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.

    Dr. Graham – as I read today’s devotion – it hit a chord in my mind…This is what I want for my life..I ask for you and others to pray for me…I need/want this change. Amen & thank you.

    There is nothing in this world that has ever completely satisfied my deepest desires. Each year i have realized just how temporary the things of the world are. Today more so than ever the world and it’s promises that you can have it all, ultimately leave one wanting more and more. Until a person comes to Jesus he will never have it all. Thank-you God for my Jesus who is my All. Praise be to God
