MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION

Psalm 100 (NASB)
Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with jubilation; Come before Him with rejoicing. Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, And His courtyards with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting And His faithfulness is to all generations.

To be obsessed with something or someone is to be compulsively preoccupied, at all times, with that object or person.

There’s something profound about the heart of the one that resolves him/herself to fully delight themselves in Jesus, filled with unbridled passion and joy. It’s the one who is always at the ready to enter into His presence, just to simply be with Him, and worship Him. We see in scripture that His delight is in the one who engages Him with gratitude and praise. We could never fully count the reasons for His worthiness. To simply say, “He is good” may seem a bit too small or trite, but truthfully, there’s just no better way in our human finite vocabulary, to describe Him. He is simply … good, in every way. Honestly, He is too good for words; but with feeble expression, yet a heart full of adoration, we lift to Him our song of praise. 


Consider these promises. His love is unconditional, unfailing, and eternal. Forever His love is constant. It’s divinely sure and steady. He never wavers in His fidelity, with faithfulness that reaches down from generation to generation. His favor flows down for generations, literally. 


In a world full of good things, good gifts that the Lord gives to us, there is no gift greater than the knowledge of Him and His presence. Magnificent in every way, may He be our greatest obsession.

Jesus, remove any barriers or idols and may Your presence be my greatest joy and blessing. Draw me into the deep with You. Be the object of my passion and my magnificent obsession.
Amen.
