. . . for I seek not yours but you:
Obviously I have taken these seven words from the context of the surrounding verses but you see it is these seven words that highlighted themselves to me.
The Apostle Paul was writing to the Church at Corinth and he was letting them know he was not longing to see them for what they could do for him but for the pleasure of their company. He was not interested in their money, he wanted the warmth and comfort of companionship. He wanted the fellowship of family.
I can’t help but think wouldn’t it bless ABBA if we spent more time just wanting the pleasure of His Company rather than what He can do for us? Someone and I don’t recall who stated it similar to this: seek His Face before we seek His Hand.
So that’s my challenge for myself today to seek ABBA’s Face, His Companionship before giving Him my list of Needs and Wants.
Thank You, HOLY SPIRIT, for making The Father’s Word alive to us. Thank You for turning on the highlighting as we read. And since You have we are confident that You will surely guide us and bring us to the place that we seek Your Companionship even more than Your Storehouse of Blessings. And we Your People agree in JESUS’ Mighty Name.
For me to personally pray with you on this 35th day of 2014, send me an email.
