” Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” [Psalm 37:4]
I’m not sure why something so simple can become so twisted—the word begins with God not man—desire is not a matter of pointing a finger and saying—enie, meenie, minie mo—I choose my desire to go! God is not a slot machine system of name it claim it generosity.
Submission to authority brings understanding that it is God who has sown a desire into the heart. The great value of knowing due process is that with the revelation of desire grows the passion to possess and the patience to wait on God. ”For the revelation awaits an appointed time, it speaks of the end and will not prove false, though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” [Habakkuk 2:3]
This desire is given in trust—and trust proves its origin—”Those who trust in the Lord…cannot be shaken but endures forever” [Psalm 125:1]
This desire takes time—and time will prove it authenticity— ”The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the first…” [Job 42:12]
This desire takes testing—and testing proves its value—”These have come so that your faith of greater than gold…may be proved genuine …” [1 Peter 1:7]
The circle of desire is conditioned by delight and fulfilled when union with God is complete. Two hearts beat as one—one faith—one purpose—and one desire. It does not grow out of the earth it is sown into the earth by the creator and carried in the heart of those who are the new creation in Christ.
