This year, I'm sharing my "Treasures" of my study of my "Ponder the Morsels" book. I've picked 31 Psalms to study throughout 2013. Today I studied Psalm 27. Here is what I learned.
You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word]. Psalm 27:8 (AMP)
The prodding of my heart leads me to chase after You. I am seeking You, Eternal One—don’t retreat from me. Psalm 27:8 (VOICE)
Necessity. Indispensable. An imperative requirement or need for something. Absolutely necessary. Essential.
Is God’s Word a vital necessity for me? Is studying, and applying God’s Word an imperative requirement for me? Does my heart ache for the Truth of God?
I need to make God “Priority One” in my life. For only when I make God “Priority One” will I have the privilege of getting to know Him, and work on building a deeper more meaningful relationship with my great God.
Necessity. Indispensable. If I really want to create a positive day, God must be “Priority One”!
