“LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:” (Psalm 10:17)
Our Desires. What are your desires? They can be many and varied.
Many of us think first, of carnal worldly things. Cars, homes, food, physical and financial health. A special Companion to love, and to peacefully exist.
All these things are fine, but should they be at the top of our list?
Are you thinking short or long term? So far my goals and thinking in life have been centered on today. Earning a living, meeting today’s needs.
Which, by the way, was one of the Lord’s commands when they entered the promised land, and also taught, in the Lord’s prayer. (Exodus 16:4; Matthew 6:34)
I guess I didn’t think that I would grow old, like the rest of humanity.
No plans for retirement, no insurance, no savings, 401k, or any other safety net.
That has brought me here. Old and not able to continue working. Yet, I am at peace.
Out of work, broke, hurting, filled with the knowledge that my only hope is God.
My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus and His Righteousness!
Have I been an obedient servant or a fool? I wish it was a servant, but the first half of my life I wasn’t concerned with the things of God.
This second half has been very different. I accepted Jesus as both Lord and Savior. Many Want the savior, it is harder to let Him be Lord.
It is amazing, how with our eyes on Him our desires change. The Worlds riches are not as attractive.
I have learned, we MUST STAND FAST ON HIS WORD! It is the Word that conveys the Power and Grace of God.
God spoke the world into existence and told us to Believe and Confess. Speaking, confessing is important for our Salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
So our Desires should be changed as we walk with the Lord.
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” (Psalm 37:4)
