Our Heart’s Desire (2)
October 28, 2022

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Our Heart’s Desire (2)”

What is our inmost or central part of our desire? Is our heart in the right place?

These are questions we must ask ourselves when it comes to who we are as believers.

Is our heart for God? If our answer is yes, then we must love Him with the whole of our being, the whole of who we are, heart, soul, mind, and strength. But this also involves loving others.

“‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)

Is our heart’s desire for others, and to see them come into salvation? This was the Apostle Paul’s heart’s desire.

“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.” (Romans 10:1)

This was such a desire on Paul’s part that he actually said, “For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh.” (Romans 9:3)

This was also Moses’s prayer for the people. God was about to wipe out the whole Jewish race for their sin of idolatry with the golden calf and start all over with Moses. But Moses pleaded with God for their salvation (Exodus 32:10-13).

But Moses didn’t stop there, even though God relented. Moses went on to say, “But now, please forgive their sin–but if not, then blot me out of the book you have written.” (Exodus 32:32)

Such a heart desire should be ours as well. We should desire the salvation of others over our own life’s breath. These are people Jesus died for; are we willing to do the same?

Let’s delight ourselves in the Great Commission, and God will give to us the desire of our heart (Psalm 37:4)
