You’ve taken me to an unknown territory—an isolated place where the ocean waves crash against the seashore, warning me that a storm is near. It is here in my exile that You open my eyes to the truth that You alone are God. It is here, heavenly Father, that You pull me close to You through Your Word, Your truth, and ask me, Who are you seeking?
Lord, it is You. I seek You and Your truth for my life! It breaks my heart that I have wasted precious time seeking after distractions that have diverted my attention away from Your love and grace.
Heavenly Father, You have revealed to me that You want me to know You more deeply—to love Your Word, to trust You, to seek You, and to know there is no other way to have eternal life with You except through Your Son, Jesus. Your truth tells me,
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6 ESV).
Father, there is no other way! You gave Your one and only Son so that through His death, I would have eternal life with You. Through His sacrifice, the veil was torn that separated me from You so that I could enter into Your throne, the Holy of Holies. It’s only through Jesus that I can stand before You without fear and trembling because He stands in front of me. You see me through Your precious Son, who knew no sin. Through Him I am pure, I am righteous, I am holy, and I am as white as snow.
Now as my quiet time ends, You reveal to me that this is my beginning to know You more deeply, to love Your Word, and to trust You all the days of my life. You are God alone. You are truth. Heavenly Father, it is You that I seek; I seek truth.
