God “will give to each person according to what he has done” (Psalm 62:12). To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.

Romans 2:6-7

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

God not only seeks after us, but he also desires a relationship with us — he longs for us to seek after him and after matters that are important to him. When we persistently seek his glory by doing good deeds and seek eternal values rather than temporal things, he is overjoyed to give us what he has always designed for us: eternal life with him and influence on others for good. In other words, the seeking God is always looking for those seeking him!

My Prayer…

Abba Father, thank you for loving me when I was lost and sinned. Thank you for not just loving me but also seeking me by sending Jesus. Thank you for your justice that you met with your grace in your Son Jesus. I confess that I sometimes get distracted and upset with things that don’t matter very much. Please bless me as I seek to discipline my heart and focus my desires on eternal things as I seek your glory and honor in how I conduct my life. I find it reassuring, Father, that your desire to bless me with eternal life is still even greater than my pursuit of it. In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
