Disappointment leaves when Jesus becomes our one desire because He will never fail us. Only He was made to fulfill us. Make Jesus Your one desire.
There have been times when I have been disappointed because of my desires not being met. I’ve had desires to meet financial goals, certain expectations from friends and loved ones, and life goals in general.
My desires are not always being met, but in those moments of disappointment, I remind my heart that I am never in lack because I have Jesus, the lover and keeper of my soul (Psalm 121:5).
Many desires can arise in our hearts, but let us not forget the one most important desire we should have: loving Jesus and beholding His beauty.
Psalm 27:4 says, “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”
May beholding Jesus be our only desire now and for eternity. We were made to have fellowship with Jesus. Nothing else will satisfy but Him.
There is no one and nothing more worthy than Jesus. Jesus alone deserves our utmost affection. It can be easy to give our desires and attention to things of this world, but let us not lose sight of who is most important which is Jesus.
What has been consuming the majority of your thoughts and time? Have you cared more about what people think than what God thinks? Are you completely satisfied in Jesus alone?
These are questions we must ask ourselves to make sure Jesus is our only Lord and desire in life. This world is but a vapor, but eternity with Jesus will be forever (James 4:14).
Let’s keep Jesus as our only pursuit in all we do. Only He is most worthy. Psalm 145:3 says, “Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.”
It’s never a waste of time knowing Jesus. He is the only One we will be beholding and worshipping in eternity. Every knee will bow at the name of Jesus and every tongue will acknowledge that Jesus is Lord (Phil. 2:10-11).
Paul from the Bible lived a life that showed Jesus was everything to him. He was willing to suffer and give up his life for the sake of the gospel and to know Jesus.
He says in Philippians 3:8, “I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.”
Jesus was more important than anything in this world to Paul. May Jesus be more important than anything else to you as well. Everything in this world will pass away, but Jesus reigns forever.
Don’t let your circumstances make you forget the wonderful acts of God. There is no one greater than the God in the Bible.
What is captivating your heart at this moment? Will you set your desire on things above and not on earthly things?
We were made to worship ONE person and that is Jesus. The beauty of the Lord was meant to captivate our hearts. The world will present many things for us to worship, but let us behold the only One who is worthy to receive glory, honor, and power (Revelation 4:11).
May we never lose our awe in the majestic wonder and beauty of the Lord Jesus, the creator of all things.
How amazing is it to know that God has chosen us to be His, and He to be our God? He could have allowed us to be doomed in hell because of our sins, but instead, He pursued us with fervent love and sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins so that we could be with Him forever. In Christ, we get to be in eternity and behold the Lamb of God on His throne. May we make Jesus our one desire now on earth.
Let Jesus become your everything because He is your everything. Everything in this world will fade, but God and His word never will (Isaiah 40:8). So remember, make Jesus your one desire.
Prayer: Jesus, thank you for always meeting my every need. We are grateful that in You there is no room for disappointment because You always come through for us. Thank you for being our God.
