May our seeking of the Lord our God not be for mere facts about Him, rather more for His heart concerning us (not for benefit but for revelation of purpose), concerning those around us and to whom He sent us.
As a son and as His servant we remain useless to Him except we know this; but armed with the knowledge of His heart, we respond accurately and appropriately to each situation we are confronted by.
Matthew 8:2-3,5-7; Matthew 11:28; Mark 8:2-3 to show a few examples.
May we be effective principal agents in His hands.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 KJV
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
Matthew 8:2-3, 5-7 KJV
I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.
Mark 8:2-3 KJV
