I have many desires... Iím human. But there isnít a single desire in my heart that comes anywhere close to comparing to the desire I have to ABIDE in the presence of God, a dwelling place that I never want to be without for the rest of my life. I canít be without it. You see, Iíd be lost without it.

Music is a fantastic ministry tool. One of the songs that ministers to me very much is by Newsboys -- ĎPresence (My Heartís Desire)í and itís one of the songs that I have a hard time getting out of my head... not that Iíd want to. Itís like my heart song to God that I didnít personally write. Let me share the lyrics with you here:

I lift up my voice to The King,
The King of Glory.
I hold out my hands to The One who is worthy.
I long for Your presence.
I long. Lord, I need Your touch.

Chorus: Come, oh Lord, and fill up my life
With the light of Your presence.
This is my heart's desire.
Oh Father, come and let Your spirit abide.
I long for Your presence.
This is my heart's desire.

I long to be washed in the well of Your mercy.
I long to be warmed by the fire of Your glory.
I long for Your presence.
I long for Your healing touch.

Chorus

It's my desire (I wanna feel Your presence).
Lord, it's my desire (I wanna feel Your presence).
Lord, You're my desire (I wanna feel Your presence).
I wanna feel Your presence.
I wanna feel Your presence.
I wanna feel Your presence - Jesus.

Chorus: Come, oh Lord, and fill up my life
With the light of Your presence.
This is my heart's desire (this is my heart's desire, oh...)
Come and let Your spirit abide.
I long for Your presence (presence...)
This is my heart's desire (this is my heart's desire, oh...)
Come, oh Lord, and fill up my life (fill up my life)
With the light of Your presence.
This is my heart's desire (this is my heart's desire, oh...)
Come and let Your spirit abide.
I long for Your presence.
This is my heart's desire.
It's my desire.

Lord, You're my desire.
Lord, You're my desire.

(KJV)
Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Romans 7:22 For I delight in the law of God AFTER THE INWARD MAN:

I Corinthians 14:1 FOLLOW after CHARITY, and DESIRE SPIRITUAL GIFTS, but rather THAT YE MAY PROPHESY. Philippians 4:17-19 Not because I desire a gift: but I DESIRE FRUIT that may abound to your account. But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, WELLPLEASING TO GOD. But MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY all your need according to HIS RICHES IN GLORY BY CHRIST JESUS.

Colossians 1:9-12 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to DESIRE THAT YE MIGHT BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL IN ALL WISDOM AND SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING; That ye might WALK WORTHY OF THE LORD unto all PLEASING, being FRUITFUL in every GOOD WORK, and increasing in the KNOWLEDGE OF GOD; STRENGTHENED with all might, according to HIS GLORIOUS POWER, unto all PATIENCE and LONGSUFFERING with JOYFULNESS; Giving THANKS unto the FATHER, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the INHERITANCE OF THE SAINTS IN LIGHT:

Hebrews 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an HEAVENLY: wherefore God is not ashamed to be CALLED THEIR GOD: for HE HATH PREPARED FOR THEM A CITY.

I John 5:15 And if we know that HE HEAR US, WHATSOEVER we ask, we KNOW that we have the petitions that we desired OF HIM. Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Well, looks Iíll be receiving my heart's desires. But even better than that, looks like the Lordís about to pour wisdom and knowledge and spiritual gifts all out on me and Iíll be doing a whole lot more prophesying to the church, seeing the blind gain sight, the sick recover, the dead raised, storms ceased, and the captives set free.

Oh, and ďeven greater things than these.Ē Why? Because... I delight myself in the Lord... first and foremost... Heís my FIRST LOVE... and He, plain and simply, cannot lie. And He knows, I'd gladly give up every other desire that I have to simply dwell in His presence.

Many Christians fail to realize the Authority that has been handed us THROUGH Jesus The Christ. He said "and ALL these things shall be added unto you." All He asked us to do was seek ye first the kingdom of GOD and His righteousness. We have been granted Keys to the kingdom, Like Peter. We then have access to The King. What is a kingdom without a king? What is a Kingdom without keys? Keys represent ownwership of possesions of all things in The Kingdom. WE GOT TO START TAKING BY FORCE! IT is Written and it shall come to pass! God Bless you and stir up the heavens and shake the manna loose in The name of Jesus.

My heart's desire is to 'abide' ... I'd gladly give up every desire that I have to simply dwell in His presence. Love, the slayer of fleshly desire, the womb of Abiding Grace...may He envelop our hearts with such passion that we know no other home.
Debra Brand 22 Apr 2005
Oh, what a life we live when we let Christ lead! I come into agreement with you 'Treava' for God to grant you your heart's desires!
