Seize: take (an opportunity or initiative) eagerly and decisively.
You know what sounds nice? The promise of security. The promise of freedom. The promise that, no matter what, someone would always be there for you, accept you, and love you. The promise of blessings. The promise of forgiveness.
And you know what? All of that is ours for the taking when we accept and pursue a relationship with Jesus. How crazy is that!
So today, I encourage you to seize the opportunity and pursue God. Look into the Bible and see what He speaks over us; what He’s promised to His people; who He is to us. And then you’ll know.
Seize the moment. Seek Jesus today.
