Desire…a strong feeling of wanting something. So many of us desire material things, we even pray for them and do everything in our own power to attain them. We desire people and love and we imagine a life without struggle or want. But do you REALLY desire the Lord? Are you constantly delighting in His Word? Is your imagination soaring at the mere thought of His love for you?
Psalm 1:2-3 – but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Can you look past the things you wish for and look into the face of God which only has the power to give strength, integrity, and courage? If we DESIRE to follow God more closely and rest in His peace, we must meditate on His Word day and night. There is no better place to start than in the poetic music of the Psalms! If we desire to be fruitful in our walk with Christ and be prosperous in ALL our ways, we can find here, in His Word, that God is a strong tower, a mighty fortress, and our HOPE for all eternity!

To further your reading, consider this from:
Joshua 1:8 – Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
God’s opinion of us is the most important so we must do what HE says and not what the world says. Joshua 1 outlines exactly what it is God wants from us so that we WILL be prosperous and successful in life. The Word is meant to teach us and it has the answers to every single question we dare ask. Christ died for us so that our choices to follow Him would be easy, not hard.
