What are Your Desires?
“The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.” Proverbs 13:19
Desire is one of the keys to happiness. But what exactly is desire? And how can you go about fulfilling yours? Desire is often thought of as a strong craving or urge. It can be something you want very badly or simply something you really want. Therefore, fulfilling a desire is a major factor in attaining happiness or unleashing foolishness in humankind. That’s why Proverbs 10:24 says, “What the wicked dreads will come upon him, but the desire of the righteous will be granted.”
Desire is one of the universe’s darkest, most hidden, selfish, conscious, and unconscious forces. It is a force that makes us go through very difficult times and trials to achieve what we want. Desire can be positive or negative. And it can be associated with good and evil. So, today’s bible verse is simply about rejecting wickedness and pursuing goodness; those who do good will be vindicated in the end, and the wicked will be exposed for what they are because there is a reward for every desire.
Matthew 5:6 says, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
The satisfaction of human’s desire through the enjoyment of the things they desire is very acceptable and pleasing to them, as shown in this analysis; “Of fools’ desires, saying that while it is sweet for sinners to indulge and satisfy their desires, which are entirely carnal and sinful, they love sin and despise the thought of leaving it because their desires are completely set on it.” ‘The desires of good people, or the desires of the righteous, are set on that which is good, and they rejoice when they achieve it and mourn when they fall short of it.
From the standpoint of general desires, whatever you earnestly desire, the satisfaction of that desire will be based on your desires. Therefore, the most important thing is to understand your desires and know what they are and their benefits. So that you can choose to live according to them, however, I encourage you to hold fast to good desire, which is the pleasure of God our Father; our desire should be such that it is pleasing to the Lord, and when it gets out of hand, we should call it back into order with the help of the Holy Spirit. Remember, Proverbs 16:7 says, “When the LORD takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.”
1. Father, bestow on me the desires that will please you.
2. Father, may all the good things I do prosper in Jesus’ name. Amen.
3. Oh Lord, let dreams released by enchanters in other to attack and disorganize my destiny be backfired now in Jesus’ name.
