I read a thought-provoking paragraph out of my favorite devotional earlier in the week, Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson.
This one really stuck out and caught my attention:
Psalm 37:4 states that when you take delight in the Lord, God will give you the desires of your heart. The word give means “to conceive.” As you press into God’s presence, old sinful desires die, and new holy desires are birthed in your spirit. These single-cell desires ultimately become lifelong dreams if we nurture them in prayer. – Mark Batterson, Draw the Circle
The part that jumped off the page for me was about pressing into God’s presence – how our old sinful desires die and new holy desires are birthed in your spirit.
YES! YES! YES!
Have you pressed into Him lately?
Are there any desires you’ve had that seem to be falling to the side while God births something new inside you? I still feel like God is doing this in my own life. Oh, how I hope He never stops.
