I have asked one thing from the LORD; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the LORD and seeking Him in His temple. – Psalm 27:4
Can you think of a time you thought someone was cute? Maybe they were in your math class and instead of listening to your teacher you stared at them instead. You watched their every move during class. Perhaps you found out they were out for the band, so you decided to join too, just to be closer to them. Because let’s be honest, when you like someone, you want to know all about them and be with them as much as you can.
That’s a lot like we’re supposed to feel toward God. We should be desiring to be where God is. We should be thinking about Him and be wanting to know Him more. We get that when it comes to someone we think is cute, but it’s a bit harder with God, isn’t it?
How do we seek God and spend time with Him? One good place to start is by setting some time aside each day and talking with God and reading God’s word. You could begin by simply reading a scripture before bed and spend a couple of minutes praying. As you get comfortable, you could increase your time with the Lord.
Any time you spend getting to know God is not wasted. Knowing Jesus is the best decision you could ever make. So challenge yourself to go deeper with God and get to know Him better.
