The Strongest Desire of my Heart

Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalms 21:2 You have given him his heart’s desire,

We all have many desires, but which of the desires in our heart is number one, which is the strongest. Not many people have even thought about that question so most have no clue. If we do identify what it is, then pray that we would get it, purposely pursue it, and then work diligently to acquire it, the strongest of desires will become even stronger and we will soon become consumed with reaching it.

So what is the strongest desire of your heart? For some it might be the salvation of a family member, for others it might be the reconciliation of their marriage, and for others it might be good health.

The strongest desire of my heart is that I would become holy and righteous, that I would be like Jesus in character, perfect before God, that I would stop sinning.

Colossians 1:22 to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach—

Ephesians 1:4 that we would be holy and blameless before Him.

Jesus said that if I truly wanted to become righteous it would happen, so I am turning up the heat until that desire is white-hot in me, consuming my life

Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

There are five blessings that will come into the life of any person who becomes passionate about becoming a holy and righteous person before God.

(1) We will become increasingly sensitized to the things that we do, say, and think that are sin. Small sins that we in the past haven’t noticed or we have easily skipped over will become glaringly obvious.

(2) We will be quick to confess all known sin to God in order to experience His forgiveness.

(3) We will become wiser in knowing what things we can do to help us move towards holiness.

(4) We will become much less critical and judgmental of others.

(5) As the desire grows to become holy and righteous God will give us the power to accomplish that desire.
