What is your response if GOD doesn’t fulfill a burning desire?
For some people, unmet longing feels like the worst thing that could happen. It makes their entire life seem disappointing and incomplete! So they pursue their dreams themselves either in opposition to GOD’S will or in disregard and end up truly disappointed, even if they got what they think they wanted!
Deep down inside of us is a desire, a hunger for something we can not see and do not fully know, which is “GOD-Himself”!
Of course, we can never fully know and understand GOD; there is always more to be uncovered about Him. But He promises to reveal to us more about His ways as we grow close in fellowship with Him daily (our personal prayer time).
Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Amazingly, as we pursue our desire for GOD, He fulfills the other desires He has given us. And so we learn that acquiring anything outside of His will eventually turns to ashes, leaving dust in our mouths! He longs to fill us with “pleasures forevermore.”
You make known to me the path of life. Abundance of joys are in Your presence, eternal pleasures at Your right hand.
