1 You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; Psalm 63:1
Earnestly, what does it mean? It simply means honestly. So what does that mean in relation to seeking God? Well, for many of us we hold back in what we say because a) it sounds corny or 2) because it sounds too real. But is it possible to have a “too real” prayer? Of course not. The Lord knows exactly what’s on our minds and He wants us to tell Him all.
It may even be raw and gritty. “So?”
It may be coarse and bitter. “Good.”
You may even utter some choice words. “Go for it.”
The point I’m trying to make is that God wants us to come to Him. Period. He wants fellowship with us infinitely more than we desire it with Him.
So when you go to prayer, let it all hang out, “warts and all.” That’s earnestly seeking Him.
