MFM Daily Devotional 2nd August 2022 OUTLINE
From our devotional yesterday, we were able to establish the truth that Jesus does not want His followers to be entangled by the vain pursuits of this life. Unfortunately, many believers have lost their hunger and thirst for God due to their pursuit of the mundane things of this world. Search your heart. Do you still have that red-hot hunger in your heart for God as it was some years back? I mean the type of hunger that used to drive you before God for communion at any slightest opportunity. Is your heart not clogged with the vain pursuits of life?
Remember Luke 12:15b that says, A man’s life does not consist of the abundance of things he possesses. This means that your life is not defined by your wealth, degree, mansion, cars, fat bank account, designer outfits, etc. Your life is only defined by the degree of the fullness of God that you carry. All these worldly possessions shall be destroyed eventually. It is only God’s life that is eternal.
Take note of this admonition by Apostle Peter in 2 Peter 3:11, “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness.” Beloved, the only One worthy of your time, energy, passion and pursuit is the Almighty God and not any other thing.
Is God your ultimate pursuit in life? You need to take a cue from the Psalmist, a man after God’s heart, and make your pursuit of God deliberate, conscious and vigorous. The Psalmist (David) and other men who had or still have appointment with glorious destiny make the pursuit of God their ultimate pursuit in life.
The devil is vigorously and bitterly using the arrow of sin, iniquity, distraction, diversion, evil engagement and so on to fight the desire and determination of many believers to seek and pursue God more. Always remember that greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).
