Psalm 119:40 KJV | Psalms, Psalms quotes, Bible scriptures

Behold, I have longed after Jesus: quicken me in thy righteousness! Have I? Have I longed after Jesus like David did? Have I desired His continuous influence over my spirit? At times there is a disconnect between what my spirit desires and what my flesh desires! So which one wins?

Sitting Bull was once attributed to this saying:

“Inside of me there are two dogs. One is mean and evil and the other is good and they fight each other all the time. When asked which one wins I answer, the one I feed the most.”

There is a lot of truth in this. If you feed your spirit with the word of God and prayer, you’ll be feeding the part of you that longs for Jesus, not the world!

In all seriousness, God’s word cleanses and is pure. No evil can come from reading your Bible and meditating on it… only good, if your heart is sincere in wanting to grow in the Lord.

Oh that we should desire Jesus with all our hearts in all that we say and do throughout the day. So often we are distracted with the cares of this world and the tasks at hand. We need to have that time alone where we desired to be quickened in the God’s righteousness!

Awaken my spirit and desire those things that will draw me close to You, Jesus! Let this be my daily prayer as soon as my feet hit the ground in the morning.
