Passionate Desires Fulfilled

God gives us deep desires in order that He can fulfill them.

He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him… – Psalm 145:19

Deep desires and longings of God are not bad. They are good.
The deep desires of God – to be loved, to know love, to be known and to know, to have intimate relationship with God, to be great, to have influence, to represent God by being beautiful – all of these longings are God given and are common to man. This is how He has made us – to long for the deep things of Himself.

If you have deep desires and longings within you, it means that God has revealed to you that He has created you to be deep, intimate, and in relationship with Him. He built you with deep desires and longings in order that you seek Him. He is the ONLY ONE who can fulfill your deepest desires and longings.

The deep desires of your heart are sometimes painful to acknowledge and sometimes heart wrenching to hope in and believe for. Do not let that deter you from seeking God for them. Hope deferred makes the heart sick. A fulfilled desire, on the other hand, is life-giving. (Proverbs 13:12) It’s worth it to pursue your Godly desire, because God has promised to fulfill Godly desires.

About morgangascho

I grew up in Iowa, USA (famous for growing corn). I'm contemplative, I love writing, and blogging has become a hobby. Writing worship music is a way to engage in sweet conversation with the Divine Creator of the Universe, Jesus. He is my life. I am hidden in Him and I pray that someday I will know what that means. Until then, I'm seeking His glory, waiting for the day when it will all be revealed to me.
