Matthew 28:19–20 (NIV) — 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I
have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Deuteronomy 3:16 (NIV) — 16 But to the Reubenites and the Gadites I gave the territory extending
from Gilead down to the Arnon Gorge (the middle of the gorge being the border) and out to the
Jabbok River, which is the border of the Ammonites.
Hebrews 13:5–6 (NIV) — 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
The ability to live in and from our God given desire comes through the Holy Spirit and His ever enabling and empowering presence.
He Won’t Let Go!
Deuteronomy 4:9 (NIV) — 9 Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget
the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to
your children and to their children after them.
- What are the most persistent assaults on your heart?
- What practical intention, practice or pattern will you pursue to help you preserve your heart?
(What did Jesus do?)
- What is the Holy Spirit’s role in awakening, renewing, empowering and protecting
- What will you do to help you remember, remain and relinquish?
Being content is not freedom from desire, but freedom of giving our desires to God.
