Psalm 73:25 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Psalm 73:25

Who have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

 

What are your heart's desires? I believe that you can tell a lot about your relationship with the Lord by what drives you and what your desires are. Throughout my walk with the Lord, I have desired many things. Sometimes, they are righteous, and sometimes, they are selfish. It’s been an uphill battle, but thankfully and mercifully, the Lord has brought me into a place where I can say that the things I desire are from Him! If it isn’t from Him, then I don’t want it! And this isn’t because of me at all but only because of the power of His Spirit living in me!

 

This doesn’t mean that I don’t have prideful thoughts or selfish motives at times, but what it does mean is that what I truly chase after and want in my life comes from Him! I’m not looking for His presents but His Presence, and as much of it as I can handle! Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. It took Him softening my heart and teaching me daily through the Holy Spirit! There have been times in my walk when a conviction has been the biggest catalyst for change, and I’m thankful for it!

 

The Holy Spirit is not magical or a genie that you rub a lamp and get three wishes, but if you truly humble yourself and honestly ask Him to search your heart and remove everything that isn’t from Him and doesn’t line up with His Word, then hang on because your mind will be blown! He desires to take us deeper, but He isn’t going to force us! Ask Him to search your deepest parts, to empty you of the world, and to fill you with His Spirit today!

 

Romans 8:14 - For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

 

God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise as long as I have breath to Papa God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit!
