What We Most Want

Today I learn again that what we need most of all is completely satisfied in Jesus.

Whatever it is that we most want, we find in God. If I could reiterate this to myself every day, it would transform my wandering, my striving, and my restless, anxious heart into a satisfied heart who has found her treasure at last.

I preach the gospel to myself over and over again these days. I know that what I most want and actually need is God.

But sometimes I just don’t know what I want or need, or I forget!

I think of how David proclaimed in Psalm 27:4, “The one thing I ask of the Lord–the thing I seek most–is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfection and meditating in His temple.”

What we most want is the Lord.
