October 10, 2014 WHOLEHEARTED DEVOTION
It is true. God will show unfailing love to those who walk with Him and give Him wholehearted devotion. It just makes sense. Those who walk with Him get to know Him. Those who don’t won’t. Those who walk away from Him will not know His unfailing love because they aren’t spending time with Him. That’s one reason many people don’t believe God is in the midst of what they are going through. Because they are not walking with Him and are not wholeheartedly devoted to Him.
1 Kings 8:23 “and he prayed, “O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you in all of heaven above or on the earth below. You keep your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before you in wholehearted devotion.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, You are so good to us. You are so good to the people who put You first in their lives. You are so good to the people who search earnestly for You. Those who long for You. Those who trust and have faith in You. Thank You, Lord, for Your goodness, Your mercy and Your grace. Thank You for Your unfailing love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we put our whole heart into the things of God, He will show unfailing love.
Those who walk away from God and attempt to live on their own will never succeed.
Wholehearted devotion means to die to self and allow Christ to live in us.
We should focus, really focus, on God and give Him our undivided attention every day.
To totally long for God and be wholeheartedly devoted to Him is to truly live.
Psalm 63:1 “O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.” (NLT)
Focus: Let’s examine our hearts today and see where we are most devoted.
