Matthew 10:39 (MSG); If your first concern is to look after yourself, you’ll never find yourself. But if you forget about yourself and look to me, you’ll find both yourself and me.
When we choose God, it is because of who He is and not what He can do for us.
The Almighty God is not a convenient means to an end. He is the beginning and the end.
Some people are in salvation because of the misplaced desire to find themselves without firstly finding God.
Any man who is on such a quest is engaged in a fruitless pursuit.
Our theme scripture is clear on this. If your first concern is to look after yourself, you’ll never find yourself.
Forget anything about finding yourself and concentrate on finding Him instead.
In time, you will realise that the true pursuit of purpose is not to find our identity in God but to find God, our identity.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The true pursuit of purpose is not to find our identity in God but to find God, our identity.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. You are my priority, the reason for my devotion and dedication. You are the desire of my heart and the foundation of my life. I thank You because the more I know You, the more I know myself. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
