But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.
✍️Today, let us reflect on What God Desires and What Our Desire Should Be.
👉 Now Listen: When we are aligned with His will, our Father wants to give us our heart´s desires—in His time. As we learn to enjoy Him for who He is, our self-focused wants are replaced by His perfect will and purpose for us.
✍️People long to be understood. We appear to have many acquaintances, but we all have a deep need to feel truly known by those we love most. This is because we were created in God´s image. God is a relational being who desires for His children to know and understand Him. This should be our hearty desire – relating with God.
✍️Just as you do not want to be known for only the superficial details of who you appear to be, it is not enough to simply know about the Lord. He wants us to learn how He thinks and feels, what is important to Him, and what His purposes are.
Of course, it is impossible for man to completely know the mind of the Creator of the universe. Isaiah 55:9 tells us, ´As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.´ The depth and breadth of His mind are far too great for us to grasp fully.
However, we can better understand God´s heart and character by seeking Him and learning daily from His Word. Our desire, therefore, should be to understand His heart and character to mold our lives according to His will.
✍️If we truly desire to walk in His ways, we must first genuinely know Him. We come to know our friends better by sharing more experiences together. Similarly, we will also understand God better the longer we walk with Him and reflect on what He has revealed about Himself in the Bible.
Make this your passion and desire
