"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # 25 Todays word is: Desire"
Definition of the word Desire: Longing, or craving, Lust, to want or express a wish for someything.
Psalms chapter 37 - 4 : Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Psalms chapter 112 - 10 : The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desires of the wicked shall perish.
Ephesians chapter 2 -3 : among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lust of the flesh,fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the childre of wrath even as others.
We all have our desires, some are healthy and other that are not so healthy. We all desire love, sex, health, and wealth. These are all natural desires for human beings, but some of us have unnatural desires that covet other people's propety and things. Some of our desires are so strong that they turn into an ensatiable lust, and lusting after anything isn't good ; especially if its' not Godly.
If we're going to lust after something, let's make it a desire to be better brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ. let us desire Godly love for one another, and desire love, peace, health and happiness for everyone, these are the desires that God want us to lust after.
