Daily Devotional – Nothing but Jesus

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Psalm 63:1-5. How desperately we seek after God demonstrates our dependence on Him. For those filled with pride and achievement, they do not need a God to save them.

“You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary
    and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
    my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
    and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
    with singing lips my mouth will praise you.”

How desperate are you for Jesus?

David writes about how his entire body and being longed for the presence and glory of the Almighty God. Like a dry sponge soaking up the water from a bowl, David acknowledged his need desire to soak up the presence of God.

At the lowest times of my life, I have cried out for God as though the very breath I needed would not be possible without His involvement. Though I mentally thank God for bringing me from those times, I long for the dependence I had on my Father.

When we know that God and God’s presence is the greatest gift, everything else will only leave us feeling short-handed. Perhaps the reason that some people don’t feel that need for God and His presence is because they have never truly experienced the presence of the Almighty God. Let us search after the presence of God knowing that nothing will compare to His love and presence!

Let’s Pray

Dear Jesus, 

Your name has been set on high. Higher than any other name and I reverently praise and worship You today right now. May you be blessed and take great joy in my worship today!

In Jesus Name,

Amen
