What do you think of when you hear the word desire? Most people probably think of it sexually, and it can be used that way.
Webster defines it as ‘to long or hope for.’ We long for a lot of things. Money, fame, good health, better friends, a bigger house, etc.
We also hope for a lot of things. Someone to heal from illness, people to change, our kids to turn out as Christ followers, etc.
Do you let yourself desire? Have hope? Long for something?
Psalm 73:25 says: Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
Nothing on this earth should be more desirous than Heaven, what we will have there and Who we will see there.
Where is your desire this morning? In Whom do you hope? For what do you long?
