I wonder why a lot of people embarked upon a journey in life and always get what they want out of life even when others seems to be greeting nothing out of the same place? Have you ever thought of it before now that the fuel by which goals are achieved is neither by the amount of muscular capacity possess in fact, the preacher says, “the race is not to the swift….” Eccl.9:11, nor by the cerebral prowess. However, a popular saying is
If wishes are horse, even the beggar would ride
It’s an indication that the worst man on earth has something to pursue or is pursuing as a goal and an achievement. The fulfilment of manhood is exemplified in the array of successes one is able to arrogate to himself. Just as the heart is meant to pump blood for the continual flow of blood that life may keep functioning, the same way we all have a desire to achieve greater things. There was a man in a city who has been able to reach up to the point we can refers yo as an high echelon, yet, he has a strong desire for the sanctuary of God. I know you get who I am referring to? David was the man. Here is his words,
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.
Having a desire is not a crime. It is a daily venture if I may say; and it not limited to a specific class of men (coming from the quotation that if wishes…). Desire is a cross-cultural thing. Can we pick a child who has been born, the quest to grow begins; with the growth, he/she begins from crawling, sitting, standing and then walking. And to talk of other aspect of life that makes him/her a person of life impact. Desire in the business world is not negotiable. Even from the time colonial reigns, each of the colonialists gain several territories as a means of expressing their desire to show their strength and glory while scrambling over those territories.
Desire is thus conceived as the feeling of wanting something. To long for something or crave for. There is a passion that fuel excellence. Except a mediocres, no one ever achieve greatness without a passionate desire. The track record of great men on earth is a function of desire.
The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
I wish you could see the essentiality of desire in man. From the book of proverb written by king Solomon, a wise king and son of David, accomplishment of desire does something to the soul like nothing else, and that is sweet. Have you any desire to accomplish a task? Or are you living without a desire? Your desire must both Heavenly and earthly. As you make impact on earth, then, heaven must be the focus too.
I challenge you to have a desire for greatness. Your desire determines your delivery, your delivery depends on your destination. If you are without a desire, you will end up becoming a destitute.
