Our Desires – Where do They Come From?

Psalm 37:4 tells us that God gives us the desires of our heart and then fulfills them. The key is spending time with God so that we are motivated by the desires He gives us and not those that spring up from our flesh. Recently God has been showing me some things in my life that have taken His place and resulted in my falling into this deception myself.¬† The deception that our desires will be godly without keeping God first in our lives through bible reading, prayer and meditation. How about you? Are you seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, allowing Him to give you everything He desires. Or, are you seeking¬† things in place of Him? If you want desires that come from God, spend time with God. He will impart His desires to you and then He will bring them to pass in your life. God is always waiting for us to run back into His arms. He is quick to forgive and restore that which has been lost as we refocus our attention on Him. Please share your comments as to the distractions we all need to guard our lives from that rob us of God’s best. And, please share any helpful tips you might have for us.
