Follow Your Desires

Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

When we abandon our self-will and desire God to govern all that we are, He takes over and transitions us into an eternal creation filled and governed by Him. This magnificant new life is one of rest as God does all things in and through us. It is full of power because God is orchestrating and performing all things for us. Psalm 57:2 When He takes over His desires become our desires, thus we live by following our desires. Here I talk in more detail about this blessed gift and life.

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  1. Rachel, this message just
    led me to ‘power of prayer,
    a lesson from my cat’, An internet
    friend had been sick for a month,
    and after prayer yesterday,
    was instantly healed.
    In this circumstance,
    I was seeking the secret why, and
    the Lord led me to ‘lesson from my cat’
    where you said,
    It’s critical that we believe God
    loves us because it affects our prayers.
    Three answers at once.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Glenn – like when God’s word is not mixed with faith it doesn’t avail much … same with prayer. Though God’s mercies are extensive. Hebrews 4:2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.

  2. Another great post, Rachel. When we are blinded by sin, or immature in our faith, we tend to be suspicious of God’s motives and afraid of what He might say or do. But if we begin to truly seek Him, eventually He will reveal Himself to us as He actually is: holy, good, loving, powerful, wise and merciful. And we begin to realise that, as it says in Romans 12:2, His will is good, pleasing and perfect. Then, we will find ourselves longing to do His will, and longing for Him to mold us and guide us as He sees fit. It’s a completely different way of living, full of joy!

    • Hi Adam, that’s it .. His goodness leads to repentance, true repentance. As you know God, you learn of His love and you come to a place of wanting to forsake all of your self-will and embrace His will.

  3. I look so forward to your posts. You are such an inspiration and a true messenger of our Father. Thank you so much. Christian love…xxx
