Desire Fulfilled is a Tree of Life...

Hi dearly beloved,

How often have we been told that to desire "things" is carnal? Desire itself being put in a physical/fleshly context can sound like a dirty word.

But truth to be told, God wants us to DESIRE good "things" for us all! That house that you like? Have the desire for it! That awesome German car that you want? Have a desire for it! We have all been blessed with all the spiritual blessings in heavenly places and also blessed with all good things for us on this earth.

Proverbs 13:12

12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.

First question that would unravel this mystery would be, what is the Tree of Life?

As we look back at the first mention of the Tree of Life in Genesis 2:9,

9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

We find that the Tree of Life is "In the Midst" of the Garden. That is truly interesting as we find out that Jesus likes to be "In the Midst" of things too!
There is only 3 times mentioned in the Bible of Jesus being "in the midst" and uniquely we find that whenever Jesus is "in the midst", Peace always follows!

Luke 24:36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

John 20:26
And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace, be unto you.

So, i would say, it is scriptural to desire all good things as this would bring Jesus into your midst and give you His Peace!

Should we then agree or doubt that our Father can really give us all these things that we desire?

Well i guess His promise is best and we have to hang on to it don't we? Let's take a look.

John 14:13
whatever you may ask in My name, that I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14
If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

John 16:23
And in that day you shall ask Me nothing. Truly, truly, I say to you, Whatever you shall ask the Father in My name, He will give you.

John 16:24

Before now you have asked nothing in My name;
ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Ask our Daddy God! Ask Him in Jesus name... It's easy!
Just receive freely what your heart desires
anytime knowing that the Debt has been paid on the cross through our wonderful Saviour Jesus Christ!

Isn't our Heavenly Daddy great? So much He has already given and now He wants to give us some more!

Who's ready to be blessed some more? Who's ready for their storehouses to be filled with overflowing abundance? Who's ready for their tents to be enlarged? Who's ready for their youth to be renewed unceasingly? Health, Wholeness, Healing, Prosperity and all in all a Victorious Life!

I'm ready! Amen to that.

Are you?...

Be greatly blessed, left, right, center and all around you!

Your beloved brother,
