Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Desire

on November 4, 2013

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” –Psalm 37:4

Desire. Sometimes people think that religion suppresses desire and makes people hold back their emotions, to humble themselves before God and resist passion.

But God tells us that desire is important. Desire is a big part of faith!

God wants us to desire Him, rather than force us to follow His will.

We have to have hopes, dreams, and desires in order to make a difference in the world. We have to be filled with passion for God in order to live fully and righteously. We have to have a strong desire in order for our faith to grow stronger.

So, focus your desires on God and the things above. When Jesus and God are your highest desires, faith will grow and you can accomplish so much more. Remember God is calling you, to have a desire for Him.
