What you want or desire is what will guide you today. What you desire the most in life is what will guide you every day. Desires come and go, changing by hours and days. But only what we desire the very most in life will keep us on a sustained course.
Jesus, more than anything else, wanted to do His Father’s will, Hebrews 10:7-9. Paul wanted to do God’s will, Romans 7:19. Our choices today will be informed mostly by what is our greatest desire. It’s the greatest desire that keeps us on track. And the greatest desire a man should have is to do the will of God.
