Desire or Necessity

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

Sometimes people perceive a desire as a necessity. The heart can become so consumed with a craving that fulfilling it feels critical to your well-being. Then when GOD doesn’t meet the “need,” anger and frustration come about! 

If your need wasn’t met by GOD, ask yourself, “Is my petition essential to accomplishing GOD’S purpose, or is it only for my enjoyment? 

If it is essential for GOD’S purpose in your life, then He will answer when you pray for Him to fulfill it (ref. Philippians 4:19). 

Almighty GOD is always pleased to satisfy desires that fit within the confines of His purpose and will for your life (ref. Psalm 37:4). 

Remember, our Heavenly FATHER isn’t obligated to grant wishes or fulfill any plans but His own! 

Psalm 34:9-10
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want for those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

ABBA wants to be the One in whom fulfillment and satisfaction are found! When we are truly seeking the LORD, then we won’t require a lot of stuff and entertainment and especially people to meet our needs in order to be happy. Our JOY is in the LORD!

Be a Doer

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

The LORD conforms us to the truth by continually confronting us with the truth (the Bible)! When He does, either we accept it as truth or we ignore it. 

When we accept the truth from our heavenly FATHER, we can expect His richest blessings, even when we don’t have any reason to expect any blessings at all! 

Denying GOD’S Word is an attitude He will not bless. Think about when you heard the Word of GOD being preached last! Did you walk away with that Word heavy on your mind? Or did you simply walk away with no thought of it whatsoever? 

We need to let GOD’S truth work its way into our hearts and lives!

James 1:23-24
For if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

Let’s ask the LORD in prayer today to refocus our thoughts and help us to be an aggressive listener and to allow the Holy Spirit to cause the Word to penetrate our hearts.

Blessings,

Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
