When we know God’s thoughts and character, we develop a greater sense of security and purpose – we know we are secure in His hand and that He always wants the best for us.
We are so busy and active, it is hard to just quiet down, and seek a moment alone with God. Yet it is exactly for the hustle and bustle of life, that we need to spend time in God's secret place - the place of intimacy with God.
Is Jesus our First Love? How earnestly do we seek Jesus, how deep is our desire after him? Like the bride in the Song of Solomon, we need to pursue him and his presence relentlessly.
