”O GOD, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is.“Psalm 63:1 AMPC

When you borrow something from a friend or a relative, you use it with the utmost care because it doesn’t belong to you. You make sure to return it without scratches or damages that they may find you trustworthy.

A prevalent thing many believers do without even knowing is worshipping a borrowed God. Worshipping Him within the narrative of another man. The result of this will always bear its fruit, especially when tribulations come. I observe in sorrow every so often that many don’t know how to hold fast to His promises and keep their gaze on Him because they don’t see Him as their own and know it not.

They love God, they serve Him, they commune and fellowship with him and the brethren but cannot dare say ‘O God, You are my God’. This is what makes David the man after God’s heart. You cannot be after what you don’t know, you cannot long for what you have not experienced, you cannot thirst for what you have not tasted.

Child of God, seek to have personal experiences IN God. Resist the urge to be so taken in doing things for Him because it was in your lowest estate that He loved, chose, and died for you. It is therefore not at your best that you will labor to keep this love. Rest and receive Him and from Him.

Prayer: Father, I thank you for this word. My soul pants after all that you have to say to deposit in me, to heal and mold in me. I see as you see, I hear what you speak, and I live continually applying myself to the law you taught my heart. To you my God be all glory, honor, and praise, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
