Daily Devotional: Why You Runnin?


Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon. -Isaiah 55:6-7
  There is an old saying, "You can run but you can't hide!"

I am often amused when I look at how most of us respond to God's call... we run! We either pull the I'm not worthy bit or we start stu-ttt-tt-ttteeerrring like Moses did or then there is the I'm too young excuse also.

Honor and enjoy your Creator while you're still young,
   Before the years take their toll and your vigor wanes,
   Before your vision dims and the world blurs
   And the winter years keep you close to the fire.
  -Ecc 12:1-2

Many of us prolong answering the call opting instead to squander our youth on our own pursuits and then when we think we have had enough we will decide to give God a chance.

My question for you today is "Why You Runnin?" Are you scared? Or are you just selfish. The psalmist reminded us that we should acknowledge God while we are still young and in our prime and I want to encourage you to do just that!

Today's Challenge: Stop Running! Whatever it is you think you are looking for is nothing compared to what He has in store for you...so stop runnin from Him and start runnin FOR Him!
