ONE THING

Psalm 27:4, “One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.”

I have heard several people say when their laptop was in for repairs, “I was lost without my laptop”.

When we experienced Hurricane Ike on the coast we were without power for quite some time. We desired our air conditioning back. We desired hot water. We desired to used our stoves and have our refrigerator back. We desired to watch TV, use our telephone, check our emails. When you are without something you have a strong desire to have it back.

For Americans, our desire to spend time with God is lost and almost non existent because of our constant feeding on junk food. That is why fasting is so important, to fast all else and only get the meat that your spirit, soul and body really need.

Get quiet before God and ask the Holy Spirit to show you how to get that ONE THING desire for Him back. Each of us are unique with separate finger prints, each have a different walk with God.

We have all left our “first love.” This is all part of spiritual housecleaning, getting rid of things we don’t need and making room for what is most important. There is nothing more important than our spiritual walk with our LORD.

To the Church in Ephesus: Revelation 2:2, (AMP)  I know your industry and activities, laborious toil and trouble, and your patient endurance, and how you cannot tolerate wicked [men] and have tested and critically appraised those who call [themselves] apostles (special messengers of Christ) and yet are not, and have found them to be impostors and liars. (3)  I know you are enduring patiently and are bearing up for My name’s sake, and you have not fainted or become exhausted or grown weary. (4) But I have this [one charge to make] against you: that you have left (abandoned) the love that you had at first [you have deserted Me, your first love]. (5) Remember then from what heights you have fallen. Repent (change the inner man to meet God’s will) and do the works you did previously [when first you knew the Lord], or else I will visit you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you change your mind and repent.

Repent in Hebrew is ‘shuv’. These are the days of Teshuvah, these are the days when we turn back to our first love.
