Do you ever read a verse, or piece of Scripture, that makes you feel like you have just had “comfort food” for the soul?
These are the kind of verses that make me peacefully sigh and then say “Amen” on the long exhale. These verses make me feel that it’s a harsh winters day outside, but I am on the sofa with a blanket, cup of coffee, and watching the fire, dance – there are just certain things that bring joy to my soul!
1 Chronicles 16:11 is such a verse, for me. It’s a verse that symbolises our Christian-walk. It gives us clues to the direction in which Jesus leads. It’s the desires of God’s heart for us, as His children
David wrote this psalm when the Covenant of the Ark was settled in the city of David, and therefore, singing this psalm was thanksgiving in celebration of this historic event
Friends, this verse is mighty simply because of what came beforehand to get the Covenant of the Ark to the city. Throughout it all, God was with His children. When they sought the Lord, He was there – protecting and blessing them
The ark represented God’s promises to Israel, and just as David penned, this verse serves us as a reminder never to stop seeking the Lord, whether in good or bad times
Continually seeking God, searching for Him, and His strength is simply that with all our heart and mind – we are always focused on Him and His ways for our lives
I pray this morning that this verse becomes the comfort food of your soul
“Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him.”1 Chronicles 16:11
