Quest:The act or an instance of seeking or pursuing something; a search.
EAGERLY PURSUE and seek to acquire [this] love [make it your aim, your great quest]; and earnestly desire and cultivate the spiritual endowments (gifts), especially that you may prophesy (interpret the divine will and purpose in inspired preaching and teaching). 1 Corinthians 14:1 AMP
Making your ear attentive to skillful and godly Wisdom and inclining and directing your heart and mind to understanding [applying all your powers to the quest for it] Proverbs 2:2 AMP
During a new year many people seek things they cannot attain. I used to be one of those people. Every year I would make my resolution. I would seek something I already knew would be impossible to find. I kept failing my quest for perfection. I had to step back and realize I am not perfect, but I do have a different quest I must attain.
This year my quest will take me in a different direction, down a different path. This year I will seek the gifts God has for me. My quest may not be easy, but a quest is never easy.
This year I will eagerly pursue, seek and acquire love. Last year the love I had in my heart faltered and I lost it somewhere along the path to spirituality. I will earnestly desire and cultivate my spiritual gifts. I will make this my great quest!
I will make my ear attentive to skillful and godly wisdom. I will direct my heart and mind in the direction of understanding. I will apply all my powers to quest for these things this year!
What is your quest for the new year? Will your earnestly desire and apply all your powers to seek what you are searching for?
