For the new year, I’m asking myself four “one thing” questions. I’ll share one a day with you.
- What one thing do you desire from God?
When David found himself afraid and on the run, he begged God for one thing.
He wrote in Psalm 27:4, “One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”
If you can name the one thing you desire God to do, it will bring laser focus to your prayers.
Maybe above all else, you desire a loved one to know Christ. Or you need to hear God’s voice. Or you need God’s healing in your marriage or body. Perhaps you crave the power of the Holy Spirit in your preaching. Or you need wisdom handling a rebellious child.
As you seek God in 2010, what is the number one thing you desire from God?
