Many times Christians seem to get into a rut, it is the same prayers repeated time and time again, just slightly re-worded. We need to have a retreat within ourselves, ask ourselves what we really expect of God and then seek it out. The very purpose of our lives is to seek God. It is the spirit of man longing for fellowship with God.
Failure to seek God will result in a spiritual death. But through Him we will receive His life breathed back into our bodies. You do realize don't you that God promises us that if we seek Him, we shall find Him? .

How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say, 'I have prevailed against him'; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in Thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation. I will sing unto the LORD, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.

All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
