Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbs 11:23 NASB

“The desire of the righteous is only good, but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.” Proverbs 11:23 NASB

On yesterday’s BeTheEdge Challenge call, we talked about the verse in Psalms that calls us to “delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desire of your heart.” To get the full 5-minute challenge, you can go to the https://betheedge.wpengine.com web site and listen. The key point was, as we align our desires with God’s will or plan for our life, we find our desires are His desires and therefore He enjoys fulfilling our desire and we rejoice in it, as well. That is reinforced in telling us that righteous individuals experience ‘only good’ desires as righteous followers of God. It all depends on God being the Author of our story, and as we align with His plan, our desires are birthed and fulfilled by the eternal, all loving, all knowing Creator of the universe. I long to fulfill every desire of my grandchildren. The problem is that some of their desires can be harmful. In God’s design, there is no harmful plan, therefore, our desires from His heart are not just good – they are truly awesome.  Today, be sure your walk is aligned with your Heavenly Father and pursue the desires He has given in the strength and power He provides. And join us every Thursday from 7:50-7:55 CST on the Challenge Call. #BeTheEdge

“For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13 NASB
