And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)
There is something that I know about you. What’s that? You put this passionate desire within me to seek you with all my heart. What makes you think so? This desire certainly did not originate with me. I would have never been able to predict that one day I would have this desire in me. I can take no credit for this desire being in me. What can you do? I can give you all my thanks and praise to you for putting this desire in me. Why is that? You could have given me no greater gift than the desire to seek you with all my heart. Really? Yes, really. What makes you say that? You are helping me to come to know and love and follow and serve you as I earnestly seek you with all my heart. You are transforming the thoughts of my mind, words of my mouth and the actions of my life as I earnestly seek you with all my heart. You are guarding and guiding the entire course of my life as I earnestly seek you with all my heart. You are helping me to live a life that is good and right and pleasing to you as I seek you with all my heart. You are helping me to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name as I earnestly seek you with all my heart. Could there be any greater gift than to be made able to live the life you have called me to live? Are you asking me that question? I’m not sure. But I will tell you one thing. What’s that? I can think of no better gift or greater reward of seeking you than to be made able to know and love and follow and serve you. I certainly don’t desire anything more. I certainly don’t want anything less. Although I do have a request to make. What’s that? Keep on fanning the flame of my desire for you. Keep on making me passionate in my desire to live my life with and for you. Keep your hand on me. Keep on stirring me up for you. Keep me burning white hot for you. Help me to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. Use me according to your purposes and plans. I am at your service. I will hear and answer these prayers and this desire of yours. I will help you to be white hot for me. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, you have put a passionate desire in my heart to seek you. Fan the flame of my desire. Help me to seek you at all times. Help me to live a life that is fully devoted to you. Reward my efforts by helping me to come to know and love and follow and serve you. Amen
