KEY SCRIPTURE: Matt 5:6 “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled”
Life is only meaningful when God is put first. He is the one who holds the agenda that must be fulfilled in each person’s life. When a man pursues after God and yields to Him, then all that God has destined for that individual are fully realized in him. Psalm 34:10
“The young lions lack food and suffer hunger, but they who seek (inquire of and require) the Lord [by right of their need and on the authority of His Word], none of them shall lack any beneficial thing”. The life of David is a clear manifestation of the great blessing to the man who seeks totally after God.
The following was the description of the exceptional potentials of David, because of his unflinching devotion to God. 1Samupel 16:18 “Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him” .Aii these qualities had filled David because the Lord was with him. The man who is truly devoted to God is vested with unique potentials to fulfill the purposes of God among men. Another example of a man who distinguished himself in his relationship with men as a result of his devotion to God was Daniel
Daniel was taken as a hostage into Babylon yet his pursuit of God unearthed amazing potentials in him such that he became a spiritual eye of the kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar. He became one of the three presidents in the whole kingdom. Daniel 6:3 “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm” . Holiness makes you heavenly prepared and earthly useful as well.
Note, you can’t be a real pursuer of God and not be of great significance on the earth. True holiness is your key to realizing your real potentials.
I am a pursuer of the Lord. My life is totally given to His course. I am filled with every good thing that blesses my world. I have a very fulfilled life in every way.
Psalm 42:1″ To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah. As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.”
Exodus 36:1″ Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded”.
