Hot Pursuit

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 22, 2012

“Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:22

The Lord pursues His own with His irresistible love and grace. He is not passive in His pursuit because He knows how aggressively evil engages individuals. Like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden—God searches to see how His children are doing. He looks out for those He loves, longing to lead them into a growing relationship with His son Jesus. Indeed, the Lord’s pursuits are not trivial, but practical concerning love for His own.

Thus, we are motivated to pursue the One who pursues us with eternal energy. How can we ignore romancing Righteousness? How can we chase dreams that leave out the Dream-giver? Wise are we to call on Christ out of a pure heart in pursuit of what He cares about: righteousness, faith, love and peace. This foursome of wisdom plays close to Jesus’ heart. He knows the fruit of wise pursuit propels us toward understanding His will. We pursue the Lord, and in the process His Spirit transforms us into godly followers.

“The LORD detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue righteousness.” Proverbs 15:9

Moreover, we pursue righteousness because evil is hot on our heels. Better to turn our back on sin and flee toward faith in our Savior Jesus. When we look for love, we learn how to love. Indeed, we become what we focus on. A life that looks at how Jesus loves begins to love like Jesus loves. If our desire is peace, then we sit at the feet of the Prince of Peace and receive His tranquil trust. We acquire peace by being at peace with God.

Lastly, you hunt down heaven’s agenda, because you know what’s best for you and your family. Engaging the eternal is as simple as a moment of meditation on one Scripture verse, an hour of worship, Bible study at church, or a quiet weekend secluded with your Lord Jesus. Be intentional with integrity in little things and you will become a person of integrity in big things. Initiate love and you become loving. By faith integrate righteousness, love, and peace from a pure heart and enjoy Christ’s affirmation.

“Trouble pursues the sinner, but the righteous are rewarded with good things.” Proverbs 13:21

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for pursing me in love. Keep my pursuits pure.

I thought that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if someone could recommend a qualified website where I can get CBD Shops Business Data I am presently looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most ideal selection and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
