April 12th, 2024     Thought for the week

Have you ever felt you have lost the passion or devotion in your time alone with Yahweh, or simply lost sight of Him, even though you are still reading and praying, yet no longer seeing Him as clearly? Has a fog blown in slowly over days or weeks, covering His beauty from the eyes of your heart, numbing you to your need for Him, and depriving you of a deeper and stronger happiness in Him. Well, maybe you’ve known the fog. King David did. And he longed for what he would see, and feel, when the clouds finally parted as I am sure you do. However, meditation is not just about focused mental attention while reading and thinking without distraction for passionate desire, not cold compliance, fuels our pursuit of Yahweh as David elegantly put it in Psalm 119:48 “I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes”
May the Lord bless and keep you,
May Yahweh’s face shine upon you and be gracious to you,
May Yahweh lift up Yahweh’s countenance upon you, and grant you peace.
