For thus saith the Lord unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live
~ Amos 5:4, KJV ~
One reason we come to our Heavenly Father is to learn wisdom and gain courage. We learn the depravity of our sinful desires and the just condemnation if we do not stand ready to repent and seek forgiveness. The lusts of our flesh lead to mental, physical, and spiritual suffering. We learn that the only cure is to come into the Grace and Mercy of our Heavenly Father’s forgiveness. There is divine healing that occurs within our hearts, minds, and spirit.
Repentance requires an honest and humble appraisal of self and the desire to move forward in spirit and truth. This opens the way to spiritual improvement in our lives. It brings us to a place where we are able to ascend to greater insight and wisdom. Reading through the scriptures on a day-to-day basis encourages us to grow and improve our lives. Through prayer and meditation, we are strengthened and supported.

To live the Christian way of life may lead to such spiritual growth and wisdom as we have never before experienced. For those who are earnestly seeking God know the richness of His grace and mercy. It is a learning process that works best for those who approach Him with willingness and humility.
Heavenly Father, I come to seek after your will, your desire, and your plan for my life. I come to seek your forgiveness and grace. Help me see those things that hold me back from growing and maturing spiritually. Enlighten my mind with your wisdom and word of truth. As I ponder the scriptures, help me find the truths I long for. Assist me in applying them into my life. Your word declares that if I seek after you I shall find life. This I pray in Jesus name, Amen.
