Chase

My heart will never stop being grateful for all the Lord has done and how He is moving in our life.  I just finished reading Jennie Allen's book Chase and it encouraged me a lot to pursue a journey ... a journey to chase God's heart.



I want to be like David, Lord.
I want to love you with my whole heart, soul, mind and strength.
I don't want to just say it but I want it to be seen in my ways.
I don't want to live for the wrong things.
Lord, lead me to the life you want me to live.

Jennie stated it beautifully, "When I meet God, I want to face Him completely out of breath for having chased him with these few days I have on Earth. On that day, I want to have lived what I say I believe. I want to have talked to God more than I talk to anyone else.  I want to have trusted God and followed Him anywhere."

In my quiet time yesterday, this verse spoke to my heart. "Asa's heart was blameless all his days." (2Chronicles 15:17)   What made God say this about him? Asa removed the abominable idols from all the land and He restored the altar of the Lord.  I need to remove anything that takes the place of Jesus in my life. These things are not bad but they become my idols once I prioritize them over God. God's throne should be in its proper place - in my mind, in my soul, in my heart. By the time the Lord calls me back home, I want my heart to be blameless before Him.
