The Right Desire

By: Guest Blogger, Shairon Taylor

As people of God, we can oftentimes have the wrong mentality and personal desires.  In this aspect, we need the Davidic mentality–the mindset and the heart of David, which is the type of desire he had toward God.

In Psalm 27:4, David said, “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.”  Desire begins with an encounter with something that captivates our thoughts and heart. True desire drives your determination to fulfill that desire. To dwell in the house of the Lord was David’s desire, and he passionately sought after that.

We desire fancy cars, big homes, jobs bringing in six-figure salaries, and even spouses. But is it the right desire? Yes, God will give us the desires of our hearts, but the contingency is delighting ourselves in Him! It’s fine to want nice things; however, our passion, our desire and initiative should be seeking God, pleasing God, and serving God with a spirit of love and humility. Matthew 6:33 tells us, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

God will bless us. He desires to bless His people. But, are we obedient to Him and His Word? Are we seeking Him like we are supposed to? Are we praying and fasting like we should?

Refocus your thoughts and hearts toward God.

Blessings will come through obedience.

Scriptures:  Psalm 27:4, 37:4-5; Matthew 6:33; Colossians 3:1-2

The DNA of Change

By Guest Blogger, Tiffany Patton 

Change starts with you. Be the change that you desire to see! 

You have the ability to frame your world. Follow these simple steps to get the results you want.

  1. Meditate on things that are in alignment with your overall vision and goals.
  2. Find a scripture that supports your vision or goals.
  3. Say the scripture every day, multiple times a day. Then, speak that which you wish to see.
  4. Believe that you already have that which you ask for!
  5. Begin to operate as if it is already in existence. If you desire a mate or family, start setting the table daily. If you’re believing for a new job, get up early and get dressed as though you already have the job or business you wish to start. If you are looking to step out on faith as an entrepreneur, do your research. Believing that you can’t make something out of nothing is not God’s word. His word states greater works we shall accomplish! We have the master Creator living within us. It’s in our DNA to create something out of nothing! See it. Speak the word over it. Believe it! Know it! Be it! Your miracle begins with you.
