As explained in yesterday’s post, David endures many hardships but he had a desire to carry out God’s plan. David teaches us to seek God’s will, to have the desire to carry out the plan, and to believe He will work it out. God’s ultimate plan was that He would send Jesus; a descendant of David to rule the kingdom and the Holy Spirit will live in whoever believes in Him.
Nothing can satisfy like Jesus because His presence is heaven to us. His presence is the treasure of our heart and soul. Our days on earth are difficult at times but the hope Jesus provides gives the inspiration and desire to fulfill all that God has for us. Go to Him often in prayer aspiring for the unseen and eternal in order to make His wisdom known to those that do not know Him.
Heaven is not far away because God’s Spirit lives in our hearts. Hold this in your thoughts and never let it fade so hard times can be overcome. Let our thoughts of heaven produce pictures of paradise as we desire to fulfill God’s will.
This day with God, let us be inspired by the prayer of Jesus found in Matthew 26:39: “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
