How true is this? It seems when we get something in our minds we pursue it until we get it. It consumes us in a good way and a bad way. We need to use our desires to honor God and open His word. When we have our focus right our desire can be an amazing thing, but when it is on things of this world we struggle always trying to do and have more. Focus on God being number one and desire to have a relationship with Him and our hearts will lead us to Him. Since I have accepted Christ and been studying God’s word I can tell my desires have changed. Those things I thought I couldn’t live with out don’t mean anything and the things I thought I desired don’t fill my mind. When we fill ourselves up with God our desires change and we can grow in all areas of our lives.
I love in Philippians 2:12-13 which says, “Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire and power to do what pleases Him.”
Use your desires to learn and grow and always work to honor God. Amen
