If God should ask you today to make a wish for one thing, what would you wish for? What would your desire be?
I can bet that some people would be wishing for all the things that the world has to offer, such as a brand new house, a brand new car, a husband, a wife, to be financially successful and be able to buy anything without checking how much it is, to be famous so that they feel important when others are noticing them, and the wish list could go on and on.
I will now share a true story with you of a man who could have gotten his wish for any of the above things of the world, however, there was just one thing that he desired. The Psalmist David knew that if he just seek after that one thing, everything else that he wanted, he would receive from God.
Therefore, he wrote in Psalms 27:4, “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.”
David had that passion to seek the things of God first. He already knew that once he takes care of God’s business, God will take care of his business. David went on to be a great king, who was very powerful and successful in all that he did. He had it all, just by seeking after the one and only thing that matters most – God.
After it’s all said and done, whatever you have achieved from this world will not matter, if you have not received Jesus. The Scripture says, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36)
