Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

What is your response if GOD doesn’t fulfill a burning desire? For some people, an 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 in opposition to GOD’S will  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. That desire is for “GOD-Himself!”

Of course we can never fully know and understand GOD; there is always more to uncover about Him. But He promises to reveal to us more about His ways as we grow closer in fellowship with Him daily (through our personal prayer time and Bible reading time).

Psalm 37:4 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 while acquiring anything outside of His will, will eventually turn to ashes, leaving dust in our mouth! He longs to fill us with “pleasures forevermore.”

Psalm 16:11

You will show me the path of life;

In Your presence is fullness of joy;

At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
