Determining Desires | Learn why the wrong desires can disturb your destiny

By Chardonnay Beaver



Desire is an extremely powerful influence.

Did you know that our desires reveal the content of our hearts? Whether ambitious or mediocre, our desires play a fundamental role in our daily lives. The ‘wrong’ desires can even disturb our destiny.

For most of us, at least from what I’ve observed, the ‘wrong’ desires are often inspired by our perceived needs. Our need for love or belonging or acceptance, for example. While some might desire material things, others may desire the bare necessities – like peace and hope.

Ultimately, I encourage us all to assess and determine whether or not our desires are directing us further into, or disturbing, our destiny.

I once heard an analogy that granted me a greater understanding of destiny. The speaker described a puzzle. Each puzzle piece represented our choices. The speaker emphasized the distinctiveness of each puzzle and each puzzle piece. No one puzzle piece is like another.

Meaning, our destinies are unique. Each of us must make choices that individually work towards fulfilling our destiny, ‘our’ puzzle. Even within our own destiny, every choice is customized to the circumstance. Similarly, every puzzle piece has a distinguished shape.

This should be our objective: that our choices and desires are customized for fulfilling our destiny.

Words of Wisdom by Char of the Week: God is concerned about ‘how’ you get to the things you desire. God is concerned about the person you ‘become’ in receiving your desires. You cannot use the elevator to get to the height of your life… the stairs are necessary.

James 1:13-15
