Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – The Prayer Filled Life – Day 103 – Hebrews 11-6 – He Rewards Those Who Earnestly Seek Him – Growing As Disciples

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)

Faith In Me

What does it mean for you to have faith in me? How is your faith in me guiding the course of your life? How are your thoughts and words and actions different because you are placing all your faith in me? How have your opinions, values, and priorities changed because you believe in me and are seeking me with all your heart? There is not one area of my life that has not been dramatically transformed since the day I came to believe in you and accept you as my Savior and Lord. How so? I left my old sinful life in the world so that I could begin to love and follow and serve you with all my heart. I have thrown off anything and everything that has hindered me from living my life with and for you. Am I doing this perfectly? No, not hardly. But my heart and mind and life are focused on you. I am no longer pursuing what this world offers. I am pursuing you. I am fully devoted to you. I am listening attentively to you. I am following you to where you lead me. I am doing whatever you ask of me. Am I in this effort alone? Absolutely not. Does my success or failure in seeking you depend entirely on me? Certainly not. You are with me to help me. You are working in me, for me, and though me. You are using your word to change my heart, transform my mind, and guide my life. You are helping me to think your thoughts. You are making me able to speak your words. You are guiding me to take your actions. You are the one who is molding and shaping me into the person you want me to become. Your hand is on me to help me to live the life you have called me to live. Now, there is no place I would rather be than in your presence. Now, there is nothing I would rather do than your will. It is very good that you know that I am with you to help you. It is very good that you know that I am guarding and guiding your life. It is very good that you know that I will keep on working in you, for you, and through you as you keep on placing all your faith in me as you seek me with all your heart. It is my hope and desire and plan to live my life in an intimate relationship with you. Now, I know that nothing could be more rewarding than living my life with and for you. Keep on seeking me. Keep on following me. Keep on living your life with and for me. Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good.

Lord, I will earnestly seek you. I will seek you with everything that is within me. I will seek you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I will follow you to where you lead me. I will do whatever you ask of me. I will live my life with and for you. Amen

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Becoming Like Christ – Day 165 – Hebrews 11:6 – Earnestly Seek Him – Growing As Disciples

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)

Seek You

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
