Desire

When I saw the writer’s challenge was the word “desire.” I began to mix and match the letters. As a result these are the words within the word desire.


Rise: Just as Jesus rose from the grave victorious over death and hell, we that believe in Him will also rise in the air to meet Him. We will dwell with Him forever!

Sir: “We would see Jesus?” Can you lead them to Jesus? Do you have a desire to reach the lost? Do you have a want to help believers grow in their relationship with the Lord?

Side: II Corinthians 4:8-9, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair. Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.” (NAS)

Why was the Apostle Paul not destroyed? Because the Lord was on his side. The Lord didn't take him out of his circumstances, but He took him through those times of testing.

When are you troubled and overwhelmed with life? Can you rest in knowing that the Lord is on your side? He will take you through the storm.

Red: “What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.”

Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they be as wool.” (KJV)

Red on red equals white. My sin is red and when Jesus shed His blood for my sin. His blood cancelled out my sin. Therefore, God sees me clothed in a robe of white.

No wonder the blood of Jesus is so precious, because only He can cleanse and forgive.

Do you value the costly gift of Jesus’ blood and the washing away of your sins?


See: In my daily life, do people see Jesus? Do I desire to be a reflection of Him? I John 3:18, “My dear children, let's not just talk about love; let's practice real love. “ (The Message Bible)

Ire: Open displayed anger. Jesus displayed open anger when He turned over the money tables and declared, “And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer, but ye have made it a den to thieves.”

Do we take an open stand on issues that we know are contrary to Scripture?

Dire: Desperate or an extreme need. Jesus sees our dire or wretched need for a Savior. Only He can pay the ultimate price of sin through the shedding of His precious blood. Do I see my urgent need for His gift of salvation? Do I through the conviction of the Holy Spirit desire to open my heart’s door to Him?

Seed: Are we sowing the seed of Salvation to our family and friends? Do we plant and plan for an eternal harvest?

Psalms 126:6 “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, she doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” (KJV)

Psalms 126:6 “He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing, Will assuredly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves” (Hebrew Names Version of World English Bible)


Reed: As Jesus stood silent enduring the mocking from the Roman soldiers, a reed was placed in His hand. In the hands of the Romans it was an instrument of torture.

In David’s hand a reed is a pen of a ready writer yielded to writing the truth and the love of God. (In Strong's concordance #2563 a reed can be a writer’s pen.)

Deer: “As the deer pants for water...” Are you so thirsty for the Lord and that nothing else will quench the spiritual thirst? The Living water He gives satisfies and refreshes. His well will never run dry.

In conclusion, may the words that came out of the word desire become your heart’s cry unto the Lord.

Psalm 20:4, “May He grant you your heart’s desire….” (NAS)
