I waste time. I usually have more trash than good stuff. I pursue my wants and desires. I seek out food, TV, computer time to please me.
Selfish, I know.
Fortunately, I know I am not alone in this. I also have the hope of having more value than trash in my life. I have proof for that home in the changes that already taken place. From where I spent very little time on things of value to having some value today. I used to think of the impossibility of reading the Bible daily. How BORING!
Yet now I crave reading God’s word. I long to have Him reveal what it means for me. This, my friend, is an answered prayer. I saw no way to change so I asked God to do it, and He did! He gave me several opportunities for daily study that turned more into a few days a week. It was a start. Then He brought me to Bible Study Fellowship and I was prepared to fully take on feasting on the Word.
I had prayed for God’s desire to be my desires. As simple as it sounds and as often as I have heard it, this only sunk in when the Holy Spirit whispered into my heart. Pleasing me means I am not pleasing God. I spend time pursuing what I desire. It becomes me, me, me. I must become less so He can become more.
This is part of a series that will show what I desire verses what the Bible teaches on what God desires.
