After talking with someone about “what we want from God”, I thought about all the things I “want” from God. But as I was spending time with God one evening, I contemplated on what my true desire from God is. We desire so many “things” in life. We petition God for the things we want rather than what we truly need. We go into debt buying clothes, shoes, living above our means to impress others. We work two and three jobs to keep up with the others. We purchase vehicles we really can’t afford, and brag about the “things” that we have. We waste our money on our appearance when our saving account is either empty (speak to me God), or we don’t have one at all. But during my morning meditation on yesterday, I heard HIM say… “More of ME!” I realized that in life that should be our prayer. Lord, I don’t NEED the house, I don’t need the car, I don’t need the millions… but what I need is MORE of YOU! Not only do I NEED MORE OF YOU, but Lord I WANT… I DESIRE MORE OF YOU in MY LIFE.
We often think that if we had more MONEY, More THINGS, our own home, better cars, better clothes, a husband, a boyfriend, a wife, a girlfriend, a family, a better father, etc. that our life would be better. However, what we don’t realize is that it is not the “THINGS” that we need… but it is more of GOD!
I don’t know about you, but when I allow God to enter into my life, my home, my finances, my situation the atmosphere changes! I am no longer worried… upset… tired… sad… and for me the list can go on and on. But when I wake up and God is my only true DESIRE for the day… it does not matter what is going on around me. It doesn’t matter who likes me! It doesn’t matter what my bank account says! Nothing matters but the purpose GOD has for my life!
When we have more of God in our hearts and in our minds, he gives us direction. He gives us purpose; and we begin to live on purpose. We are FREED! We are FREE from every plan of bondage and spirit that is not like GOD! We CANNOT go wrong with God!
So on this Friday, I don’t care what is going on around you… I don’t care who is trying to still your joy… I don’t care what is going on in your relationships…your finances… I don’t care if your car is broke down and you don’t know where the money will come to fix it! I don’t care if you are an alcoholic, drug addict, and fornicator, homosexual, suicidal, depressed… you need to CRY out to HIM and allow HIM to become your TRUE DESIRE! Because when HE becomes your true DESIRE… the desires of the Enemy… Will be set free!
When God becomes your TRUE Desire… when HE is the ONLY ONE you WANT and NEED… He will bless you with everything else. Let God know today the HE is the only ONE you WANT and NEED!
We petition God on today for MORE of HIM!
Matthew 6:25- 34
“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.
“Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.
“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”
Father God you are so incredible, holy and righteous! Forgive us for looking past you and seeking material things! Things that do not matter, things that will perish! But Oh God, you are EVERLASTING. God forgive us for looking for things that have proven time after time again to fail us, when you have shown us daily how great and mighty you are. You have even sacrificed your Son for our sins, so God on today we sacrifice our desires. We focus our desires, wants, and needs on you! We come against the spirit of the enemy and remind him that WE WIN… We will WIN… We are WINNING. And we come against any force and attack that is not like GOD in our lives! We speak power and clarity in our minds right now in the name of JESUS. We declare the Spirit of the Lord is upon us! And we disapprove any satanic operations, plots, plans, and ploys that are intended to take us away from desiring God. You are Amazing GOD… and our desires today and forever more are on you!
