Thank the Lord that I’ve had the chance to pursue with brothers and sisters this summer. Through it, I can see the Lord’s great love for me and His desire to fill my spiritual needs.
My recent work schedule very miraculously has allowed me to attend the pursuing team time on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Sometimes I could only stay for a short period of time. In the beginning, I was worried I’d be disturbing the meeting by leaving early, but I really wanted to have that time with brothers and sisters to draw near to God and worship, so I went anyways. I’ve experienced that being satisfied with His steadfast love early in the morning truly has an impact on my entire day. My work is quite busy and stressful, but when I go before the Lord early in the morning, my spirit feels nourished and it helps me live before God throughout my day. This was quite an obvious change in my day.
Apart from this gain, the Lord has also been opening up more of His truths to me. I can not only understand the truth more, but I can also more deeply enjoy His love – The Lord truly knows my needs. Recent messages on topics such as “a new creation”, “spirits set free”, “God’s principles in how He does things”, “the perfect salvation”, etc., have brought me step by step deeper into the bottom of God’s heart. I have deeply realized that truly, “those who seek the Lord lack no good thing”. When my spirit is filled, I find that I have strength to face other aspects of my daily life. For example, going out to team time before work means that my day is longer and I may feel more tired, but God has helped me to still make no mistakes in my work. I feel that pursuing with brothers and sisters gladdens my spirit and helps me enjoy every thing that I do every day.
