Better Job…Bigger House ?

What are our desires? 

Do we want to have a better job, a bigger house, thicker carpet, and more money?

 Are we controlled by the flesh? 

Or have we been transformed from the way of this world by “the renewing of [our] mind?” 

When our minds are renewed, when that happens, we are told that we “may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” 

So, ask yourself, “Are my desires in line with God’s desires?” 

Am I “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance?” 

That’s God’s perfect will. 

Is it yours? 

When it is—when your desires line up with His and you delight yourself in the Lord, you are promised that He will give you those heart’s desires.
