Devotional Posted by Michael Hill
Meditate on Psalm 14:2
“The Lord looks down from heaven
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.”
When the church is gathered for corporate worship, united in action and purpose, it’s easy to sense God’s moving. Like the Church in the book of Acts, we often encounter God’s presence when we’re together on Sunday…but what about the rest of the week? Do we take time to pursue the Lord, to seek God out as the treasure that he is?
Take a few minutes to talk with God about this. Ask God, point-blank: “How am I doing in seeking after you?” Allow space to listen for God’s response. Ask the Lord to increase within you a desire to grow more intimate in your relationship with Him.
Be a Blessing:
The heart of the church is to love on our broken world. We are good people, we want to do good things! We see in Acts 4 that the Church pursued God; in return, he gave them “great power” and “great grace” to accomplish great things. They had one job: To be receptive to the presence of God. He took care of the rest! “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matt. 6:33
We draw spiritual power and renewal when we worship the Lord together. Can you imagine the deeds of God’s great power and great grace that our Lord might want to display in us, the people of Marin Covenant Church? How much more so might God use us if we all seek Him as the treasure that he is!
