Discovering God…Empowering People…Fulfilling Destinies

Day 5 – 31 Days of Prayer

Truth for Today

“Oh, that we might know the LORD! Let us press on to know him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.” – Hosea 6:3

Thought for Today

The prophet Hosea challenges us to pursue to the Lord and not to give up! Knowing God does not just happen, it requires us to “press on to know Him.” In the same way, a hungry lion might pursue a zebra, the paparazzi might pursue a celebrity, and a young dancer might pursue her dream of becoming a ballerina. Hosea says, go ahead pursue God, go for it, press on to know Him. And, if you do, God will respond to you like a refreshing, anticipated early spring rain.

Prayer for Today

Father, I want to know you! Forgive me for being so consumed with my own agenda and the circumstances of my own life. Jesus, I want to follow after you and be concerned about the things that you’re concerned about. Holy Spirit, teach me to be still and know you. Amen.
