“See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty. Malachi 3:1
The decorations are put away, the gifts are given, and it’s time to move on, right? Sometimes it seems that way. But frequently our New Year’s resolutions are to spend more time with the Lord. With this thought, and hope, I am reminded of something that I heard in a Bible study several years ago. The discussion was about Old Testament prophecies that point to Jesus. The pastor said that we shouldn’t look just for OT prophecies to find Jesus, but we should seek Jesus in all of the Old Testament, in everything we read and in our everyday lives. We need to “assume the Lord you are seeking” is everywhere you look.
Dear Lord, please help me to seek you in all that I read, hear, experience, and do. Amen.
