what is your deepest desire?

You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing.

Where do we go to get what we need?  Maybe that is the wrong question.

What do you desire?  At the core, at the deepest placed in your heart, what do you really, really want?

That answer will point to many different things.  It could be something that honors God or something that has nothing to do with God.  My prayer is for my family is that our desires will be directed by God and fulfilled only by God. 

"And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.

Have you noticed how your desires change?  It is when life gets difficult and situations are out of our control that we need God the most.  When we are very thirsty, we want something to quench our thirst.

In those dark places God shows up and meets our needs.  He is also the one that turns things around.

That is one of the biggest reasons why before tough things or tough times come we need to make the hard choices.  Choose before the pain how you will react.  Choose how you will work hard to make your relationships work before the disagreement comes up.  Choose to be honest before the opportunity to lie.

That is when God satisfies our desire.  At the place and the time of our desire God takes care of His children.  But much like our own children we can choose to do different things or get our needs met a part from God.  Because of righteousness our desires are met and become more and more like God’s desires. 

The desire of the righteous is only good, But the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.

May our desires depict a life set in the direction of honoring God.  Let God satisfy your deepest desires.

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
