As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You. Psalms 42:1
We should desire the presence of God above all other things! God’s presence brings peace, joy, clarity, direction, and provision for every need. We often desire food, companionship, money, power, beauty, and other things above the presence of God. In Exodus 3:14, Moses asked God His name and the LORD replied, “I AM.” God is everything that you need Him to be. It is important to seek and get into the presence of God because He is everything that you need. It is also important to get into God’s presence on a daily basis through prayer and Bible reading simply because it is enjoyable, provides food for our spirit, and renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). Psalm 16:11 says that “in thy presence is fulness of joy.” Desire God’s presence above anything else. He is certain not to disappoint!
