SUPERIOR AND SUPREME DESIRES
Desires are powerful Mark 11:24. Everything bows to strong desires. Nothing is impossible for a person with a strong desire. If he fails, he rises again and pursues it until he will get it. Virtue does not fall on a person where there is no desire. You cannot be filled with Holy Ghost if you do not desire for it!
However, we can have desires that are harmful and injurious to us. When the children of Israel complained about eating manna for long, God gave them what they desired. The Bible says He sent leanness to their souls. They got what they wanted, but against their well-being Psalms 87:22-31.
There are desires that are helpful and glorious. Something that is expedient and beneficial to you. You can desire things in life but do not desire things that will harm you now and in the future. There are necessary desires; good desires and bad desires. But our desires should be supreme and superior in life. Somebody can desire to be number one in all things; there is nothing bad in that. We should know that such desire has a price. Anybody desires for a leadership position must be ready to be a servant to others. Mark 9:35, it reads “And He sat down, and called the twelve, and said unto them, If any man desire to be first, [the same] shall be last of all, and servant of all. Leadership position requires supreme price 1Timothy 3:1.
In 1 Corinthians 14:1 it says we should desire spiritual gifts which are superior to natural things. Romans 1:11. Spiritual things are not valued physically and that is why many people do not desire it. But it is more valuable than what you can see! Where money fails, the anointing will prevail. Every giving done for God is a spiritual transaction Philippians 4:17.
You must desire a better country Hebrews 11:16. Desire heaven more than earth! There is also a supreme desire which is God Himself Psalms 73:25. This should be your highest desire in life. Let it be your desire to know God the more every day. The supreme desires are in God’s words and wisdom Psalms 19:11, Proverbs 3:15, 8:11. The supreme desires in God’s words and wisdom will give you all things in life. Do not go for Satan’s desires because the end of it is full of regrets.
- In the name of Jesus, the desires of Satan shall not come to pass in my life, family and ministry Luke 22:31.
- Father thank You for opening my eyes to superior and supreme desires in the name of Jesus.
- Oh Lord, help me to pursue desires which are supreme at all times, refine my desires in life in the name of Jesus.
- Oh Lord, put Your desires in the hearts of my children to love You all days of their lives in the name of Jesus.
- Oh Lord, give me Your word and wisdom that will lead me to the higher level, bail me out of financial crisis, marital problems etc. in life in the name of Jesus.
