Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. – (Matthew 5:6, NIV)
Great blessings belong to those who want to do right more than anything else. – (Matthew 5:6, ERV)
How enriched you are when you crave righteousness! For you will be surrounded with fruitfulness. – (Matthew 5:6, TPT)
As we pursue God’s best for us, we find He is faithful to meet us. God’s presence assures, His love endures, and His grace is far greater than we could ask or imagine. Blessings come when we are aware of the work of God in and around us. He is good and He endows the seeking with His presence and His grace, and makes His nearness known throughout all of our days. May we ever crave to do what is right, as our Savior surrounds us with His presence and provision to pursue His path.
Help us to pursue,
All that’s good and right;
For each who does so,
Becomes God’s delight.
Ever He’s faithful,
To all those who choose;
To seek the Lord’s best,
For grace and breakthroughs.
So, let us rise up,
With hearts full of praise;
Pursue the Lord’s best,
For all of our days.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we pursue righteousness, we discover the blessings that You have for us. Forgive us for the times that we have gone our own way without seeking, or have neglected the direction that You have provided. Teach us how to come to You in trust and to follow all that You are asking. Show us how to love those around us in a way that helps them see the blessings found in Your faithfulness. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we pursue the path of righteousness that You have prepared for us to follow. Amen.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. – Matthew 6:33
