Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
Ever, Only, All for Thee
My eyes are ever toward the LORD.
With all the busyness of life and all its trials, and with all the unrest in the world, now more than ever we need to become passionate about our Lord Jesus! Webster defines passion as “a strong love and affection;” it implies a strong emotion that has an overpowering or compelling effect. We need to be passionate about His Word and about spending time in His presence. In these last days, we need to acquire a strong, overpowering love for Jesus that has a compelling effect on our lives, which in turn will affect all the lives around us.
Our passion grows as we spend time in His Word and in His presence. Our passion grows as we keep our eyes ever toward the Lord: focused, fixed, and firm. Dear precious one, are you in the Word daily? Are you seeking the Savior’s heart in prayer? Where is your focus? What are you passionate about? May your life be one of passion for your Jesus! Lift up a heartfelt prayer unto Him!
“Take my love,
My Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.”
