I purpose to have and retain a heart that’s inclined after God.
That continues to be my ongoing aspiration and commitment. But if I do not cultivate the practice of purposefully seeking God — as both a matter of routine and a matter of relationship — I will certainly turn from Him.
“There is no God” (Psalm 53:1).
“To see if there any…that did seek God” (Psalm 53:2).
“They have not called upon God” (Psalm 53:4).
If I do not seek Him and if I do not call on Him, I will slide into denying His very existence.
I will seek Him. I will call upon Him. Consciously. Deliberately. Purposefully. Actively. Daily.
As a matter of routine.
As a matter of relationship.
