My Daily Devotional


A Passion For God

“Help, Lord, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men.”
Psalm 12:1

The above scripture was a psalm written by David when he was down and depressed, and his attitude was negative about what he saw from his people and their actions. We can see this same attitude prevalent in today’s society as it appears that so many people have abandoned God, and are going their own ways without regard to obeying God and his commands. Our televisions, our music, our newspapers and all forms of our media depict what is happening in our world. God is being taken out of our schools, our government, our justice system and even any mention of God in a public forum is being questioned by someone. One of the most important holidays of the year, Christmas, is now glorified by not worshipping the birth of Jesus, as our public displays about his nativity are being questioned in our society, and being replaced with a holiday spirit that has no mention of Jesus. God must be so disappointed with what is happening in our society today as our thoughts have turned from him to our own materialistic ways. Just recently our pastor talked about the church and getting our passion back for God in the manner our forefathers had during the time our great nation was founded. The first congress spent the first part of every session they were together in prayer, and all their decisions were based upon God and his teachings. God has been good to our nation as it is the most prosperous nation in the world, as he has blessed us because of our faith in him and our faithfulness. I believe this is changing however as we are turning from God as a nation, and God’s favor upon us is going to cause us to suffer. We can look at the history of the people of Israel and see the times when they prospered. These were the times when they followed God’s commands and were faithful to his teachings. God would bless them and their land and let them live in peace, and would let them prosper in everything they did. However when they began to wander away from God and his teachings and did not obey his commands they were punished, defeated and were plundered and humiliated by their enemies. As Christians we must have a passion for God and make him number one in our lives. We must get our minds off ourselves and on God and make it our number one goal to do his will. Our daily lives must center around God and obeying his commands and doing what is right. God wants us to prosper in everything we do, but our passion for him must be our number one thought and focus during our day. Spend time with God each day and allow him to direct your life, and fulfill his plan for you and get your passion back.
