Sunday’s Word – 29Jan12

But as for me, my prayer is to you, O LORD.   At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness. Psalms 69:13

Pursue

Usually on the first of  January I receive a word that sets the course for the year. But this year I’ve struggled with hearing a word for 2012.  It has been very discouraging and the month is nearly over! Until today.

Today I heard so simply. The Hebrew word, Radaph, means to follow after or attend closely upon. This year I will  devotedly seek after the things God has for me   This word  has another meaning as well.  It can mean to chase away or put to flight. So this year I will remove, with the same intensity, that which should no longer be in my life.

My One Word for 2012 is:

Pursue.

Pursue God’s will for all of my life.

Pursue the dreams He has placed inside me.

Pursue the desires of my heart He has appointed for me.

Pursue removing sin in my life.

Pursue the relationships he brings into my life.

Pursue the abandonment of knowing Him.

Pursue the beauty of His creation.

So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”     I Samuel 30:8

Sunday’s Word – 22Jan12

I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.  Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.  This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him  and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!   Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!  Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,  for those who fear him have no lack! The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.  Psalms 34:4-10
