What’s In Your Heart?

I John 2:15-16 says, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. In other words, you should never let the things you desire make you forget what you already have in Christ Jesus! We all need to examine our hearts daily and ask if what we are desiring lines up with God’s heart. If you open your hands and let go of the things you’ve so desperately wanted, you’ll be surprised by the vision God will instill in you. Your worldly wants will begin to shift into Kingdom desires and your heart will experience fulfillment in ways you never knew possible. Psalm 37:4 didn’t instruct you to delight yourself in the world rather it said, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Yes, God will give you the desires of your heart, but the first desire of your heart should be to serve Christ and not yourself. When you have Christ as your Chief desire, all of the worldly desires of your heart will be subordinate to His lordship, and you can willingly pray, ‘Not my will, but Thine will be done.’ When that happens, God will give you what your hearts’ desire, which will also line up with His heart’s desire for you!
