God Chasers Daily Devotion-#37

Devotion 36
Many souls become addicted to the spiritual sweetness of the devotional life and strive to obtain more and more of it.
People who fancy themselves as spiritual are quite often not pleased to hear about the spiritual growth of others.
Such souls become weary with spiritual exercises because they do not yield any consolation….
No soul will ever grow deep in the spiritual life unless God works passively in that soul by means of the dark night.
(St. John of the Cross, excerpts from The Dark Night of the Soul

Reflection by Pastor Kevin

Psalm 84:2  My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. KJV
Psalm 84:2  My soul (my life, my inner self) longs for and greatly desires the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God. AMP
Psalm 42:1  . As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
Psa 42:2  My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?  KJV
Psalm 42: 1 As the deer pants [longingly] for the water brooks, So my N1soul pants [longingly] for You, O God.
Psa 42:2  My soul (my life, my inner self) thirsts for God, for the living God. When will I come and see the face of God? AMP
Brethren, let us be the people who long for the presence of God as a necessity, not just a good feeling. Let us be the ones who long to see His face. Let us be the ones who are thirsty for more of Him each and every moment of each and every day. Let us never be satisfied with where we are and how much of Him we have. Let us always desire and crave for Him.  Let us never get to the place where fancy ourselves as spiritual and do not care about others and their spiritual growth. Let our hearts always be humble in the sight of the Lord and always desire to see our brothers and sisters grow in the presence of the Lord in their lives.  
His presence satisfies us. HIs presence protects us. His presence provides a place of shelter. His presence completes us and HIs shines upon us making us complete. For those of us who decided Wednesday night to run towards the mountain and to run towards God. That is where we need to be. That is where we need to be headed. We need to be headed towards Him and not standing a far off looking at Him.
Desire Him. Require Him to be be part of your day. Seek after Him with all you have, like and addict or alcoholic seeks their next drug or drink. The addict or alcoholic will do whatever it takes to get what they are craving. Let us press forward and seek Him with everything we have and doing whatever it takes, laying down whatever we need to get closer to Him each and every day !!! (P.K.)
