8 Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name;This is a song that David had sung by Asaph and his brothers.
make known his deeds among the peoples!
9Sing to him; sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
10Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
11 Seek the LORD and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
12 Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles and the judgments he uttered,
13O offspring of Israel his servant,
sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
Do I seek the Lord continually?
Is he the first thing that I look for?
To my sorrow I have to admit, I often don't. I often see other stuff first.
NOW...if I've a mind to, I can see God in all sorts of ways. I can see him at work in how my hubbie preaches, I can see the changes that he has wrought in me over the years, and so forth.
I have learned the importance of coming to him first thing in the morning, even though sometimes I don't get here.
BUT do I seek him continually?
I need to.
If I don't, how will I continue to get to know him better? And in knowing him better be changed more and more into his likeness?
I need to cultivate an attitude of seeing God first. Of seeking him all the time as I go about my daily business.
Not entirely sure what that means, or how it looks, but it is an attitude I will build.
How about you?
