Clinging to God
"My soul FOLLOWETH HARD after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me." Ps. 63:8
"That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest CLEAVE UNTO HIM: FOR HE IS THY LIFE...." Deut. 30:19
He is our only hope....yes, indeed our only LIFE...and reason for living!
The words "followeth hard" and "cleave" in these verses are the same hebrew word which means "i.e. CLING or adhere- (fig.) to catch by pursuit:....follow close...be joined (together)....
Reminds me of the book by Tozer entitled, "The Pursuit of God"....
We are UPHELD by His right hand...or we couldn't follow hard after Him at all.
But can we say today that we are CLINGING onto Him for dear life?
Is our heart GLUED to HIM? Are our thoughts caught up with thinking about Him and His Word? Are we on "fire" for Him...or are our minds dull and distracted?
Oh, for the grace to CLING HARD!!!!
