We all know how important our keys are to us. We can’t drive away from our house if we don’t have the keys. But how many of us walk out the front door to start the day without finding where God wants to be in our lives for the day.
Psalm 16:1-2 Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”
When we want to drive away from our house there is nothing that will substitute for the key to the vehicle. We can’t use a can opener or a pen to start the car. We need the key. Our life apart from God will not keep us safe or take us where we truly want to go. There is noting that can substitute for having God in our lives. We can’t replace God’s presence with possessions, money, people, or drugs.
Psalm 16:5-8 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Now if the keys get misplaced we look until they are found. We seek those keys. We show what is valuable to us in our life. You show you value finding God in your life by seeking Him first in your morning, making your life richer.
Psalm 9:10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
We all look for the perfect place to keep our keys. Have you found where to keep God in your life? Before you reach for those keys in the morning, first reach out for God.
