Verse of the Day – Isaiah 26:9
My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. — Isaiah 26:9
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
When a young couple in love is apart, they long to be with each other again. When a parent is separated from his or her child, the parent misses the child intensely. When a spouse can no longer be with a long time marriage partner because of disease, death, or divorce, that person’s soul can ache to be reunited to the one they have loved. Do you recognize your spirit aching to be with God? Do you end each day and begin the next longing to be in the presence of God? Let’s recognize our God-hunger and not only satisfy it by spending time in his presence, but let’s also communicate our desire, affection, and need for the presence of our heavenly Father in our lives.
Holy and righteous Father, I do ache to be in your presence. I know the piece of my soul that sometimes I feel is missing can only be found in you. Please, dear Father, be very real and present to me in my life today. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
