The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Psalm 27:1-6
Today's Morsel: Do you have the gotta wanna? It means you’ve got to want to. You gotta wanna serve God. You’ve gotta wanna be in church. You've gotta wanna make it to heaven. You’ve gotta wanna live holy for Jesus. You've gotta wanna labor in his vineyard. You’ve gotta wanna see your marriage work. You’ve gotta wanna see your kids know their memory verses. You’ve gotta wanna see others and yourself grow in Christ.
David had the gotta wanna. He only desired one thing, and he said that that would be what he sought for. His one desire was that he may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of his life. When you have the gotta wanna, Paul said that nothing will be able to stop you from testifying of the gospel of grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. When the gotta wanna gets into your soul, nothing shall be able to separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The way you get and keep the gotta wanna in you, is always remembering Calvary. Don’t forget, you’ve got to have the gotta wanna!
Sing: I’m gonna serve the Lord anyway that can; I’m gonna serve the Lord any way that I can, I’ll serve Him in the morning, serve Him all day long, I’m gonna serve the Lord anyway that I can.
