God’s rightful place // 07-02-21

“And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.” 1 John‬ ‭5:20-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

How amazing that we can have fellowship with Jesus, a real friendship with God that is life to us! But how sad and frightening that we can settle for so much less, chasing after what we think we want now over what we need most! Search me O God and know my heart, show me if there is anything trying to take Your rightful place as Lord, seeking to draw my heart away from fellowship with You? Please lead me in Your everlasting ways, wholehearted in my pursuit of You. Amen 🙌🏼❤️
