“Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.” (Romans 8:5)
In these verses you challenge me to consider where my head’s at… what my mind is ‘set on’. My thoughts reflect so much of where my heart is, and they aren’t always focused on you – your majesty, your power, your love… So often I’m satisfied by less than you, Lord. You are the source of all good things, yet I often forget this. May I recognize that you offer the kind of pleasure and purpose the world simply cannot. Holy Spirit, I want to desire what you desire instead of what the flesh – the natural self – so often craves. And thank you that, as I surrender to the Spirit and delight in you, you will give me the true desires of my heart (Psalm 37:4).
In Jesus’ name,
