What do you desire above every other thing?
One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. (Psalms 27:4 KJV)
What one thing do you desire? Maybe it is to be rich or famous, or achieve a monumental career goal, or earn top wages in your job, or quickly climb up the ladder of success in this world? Does your deepest desire have everything to do with the things of God or is it centered squarely upon yourself?
David exclusively desired in his heart to serve God in this Psalm.
Often what the unsaved man desires is in an opposite direction from what God desires of man. Man is often caught up in selfish desires having nothing to do with honoring and glorifying God. Selfish desires propel man forward leaving God behind in the wake, while God centered desires always place God out in front of us leading the way according to His will for our life.
The man who desires foremost to serve God will find that he desires for his life that which God desires of him. Serving God with your whole heart aligns your desires to match His will for your life.
