"With my soul have I desired Thee in the night, yea, with my spirit within me will I seek Thee early," (Isa. xxvi. 9.)

.. Those that seek Me early shall find Me." (Prov. 8. 17.) If I am seeking for a treasure of great value, I am willing to go to much trouble for it. If the treasure is very hard to find, I shall not be able to attain my object unless I devote myself entirely to it. The treasure of Heaven is God Himself, infinite in worth, and to us, who are sinful and carnal, hard to find. Let us think no sacrifice too great if we may seek Him and truly find Him. Let us say to Him in the morning: .. Yea, with my spirit within me will I seek Thee early."

Then how can it be that a believer who has already found his God is still seeking God? Oh! God is so much greater than the little he yet knows and has of Him, that he may say with truth that he seeks completely to possess God in His completeness. He so needs a new revelation of God and His grace for the new day; he is so dependent on God's gift of Himself as free grace. God's gift of Himself to His child, and his possession of God through the Holy Spirit, may become so much deeper and stronger that he is constantly required to say: .. Thou art my God, in the morning will I seek Thee, my soul thirsteth for Thee." Therefore, too, he says: .. With my spirit within me will I seek Thee early." This .. spirit" is the hidden dwelling and sphere of the Holy Spirit. He sets the heart wide open so that God may take possession of it and fill it with Himself wholly.
