Scripture: I will return again to my place, until they acknowledge their guilt and seek my face, and in their distress earnestly seek me. Hosea 5:15
Prayer: Lord, we repent for our selfish pride and we admit that, too often, we live for ourselves and turn from You. May we seek you continually in all things. Amen
Application: Pride and self-righteousness are so corrosive to our faith in God. When we acknowledge our sin and seek His righteousness, He is merciful, gracious and just.
Are you waiting for distress to make your heart humble and contrite, or are you making a choice to continually seek the face of the Lord?
