How lovely is Your tabernacle,
O Lord of hosts!
2 My soul longs, yes, even faints
For the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:1-2
What is the desire of our hearts? What is it that we truly long for? We can understand a lot about ourselves and where we stand by what our heart longs for. If our heart longs for the world and its ways then our heart and life have not truly been given to Jesus Christ. Someone who has truly given their heart to Christ is someone who longs for the Lord and His presence with everything that is within them. As we grow in our relationship with God and draw near to Him our hunger and desire for His presence continues to grow.
We must abide daily in the Lord. It is impossible to grow in the Lord if we are not abiding in Him. Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. He is the one who gives us life. As brand new creations in Christ our time spent alone with the Lord each day is vital to our relationship with Him. We are bombarded on a daily basis by the lies and deceptions of the enemy. But as we abide in the Lord He will protect us and lead us to victory. The key to all things is simply drawing near to Jesus on a daily basis.
