Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“There is no secret on how to meet with God. It only requires an open and honest heart.”

TB

Don’t

Many don’t connect with God not because He’s not available but because they honestly aren’t seeking Him. Before He can even tap your shoulder, you must sincerely acknowledge that you need Him. We are all useless and hopeless without God. Fortunately, He does find us valuable, but it’s up to us to realize that.

Do

When you begin to realize the magnitude of God, do reach out to Him. Let Him know you’re lost and that you’re aware of who He is. God is not looking for perfect people. He’s looking for just the opposite. So come as you are and seek Him out. He will be glad and delight in your presence. It’s as simple as that.

Today’s Question

Are you honestly seeking God or honestly seeking all else?

Enjoy the reading

1 Samuel 5

1 After the Philistines captured the Ark of God, they took it from the battleground at Ebenezer to the town of Ashdod. 2 They carried the Ark of God into the temple of Dagon and placed it beside an idol of Dagon. 3 But when the citizens of Ashdod went to see it the next morning, Dagon had fallen with his face to the ground in front of the Ark of the LORD ! So they took Dagon and put him in his place again. 4 But the next morning the same thing happened—Dagon had fallen face down before the Ark of the LORD again. This time his head and hands had broken off and were lying in the doorway. Only the trunk of his body was left intact. 5 That is why to this day neither the priests of Dagon nor anyone who enters the temple of Dagon in Ashdod will step on its threshold. 6 Then the LORD’s heavy hand struck the people of Ashdod and the nearby villages with a plague of tumors. 7 When the people realized what was happening, they cried out, “We can’t keep the Ark of the God of Israel here any longer! He is against us! We will all be destroyed along with Dagon, our god.” 8 So they called together the rulers of the Philistine towns and asked, “What should we do with the Ark of the God of Israel?” The rulers discussed it and replied, “Move it to the town of Gath.” So they moved the Ark of the God of Israel to Gath. 9 But when the Ark arrived at Gath, the LORD’s heavy hand fell on its men, young and old; he struck them with a plague of tumors, and there was a great panic. 10 So they sent the Ark of God to the town of Ekron, but when the people of Ekron saw it coming they cried out, “They are bringing the Ark of the God of Israel here to kill us, too!” 11 The people summoned the Philistine rulers again and begged them, “Please send the Ark of the God of Israel back to its own country, or it will kill us all.” For the deadly plague from God had already begun, and great fear was sweeping across the town. 12 Those who didn’t die were afflicted with tumors; and the cry from the town rose to heaven.
