The purpose of longing
The pitfall of longing
- Read: Ecclesiastes 2:1-9; Psalm 73:25; Psalm 63:1
- Our attempt to satisfy our longings with anything other than God
- How have you fallen into the pit?
- What are you pursuing to satisfy your longing that can never bring ultimate satisfaction?
The promise of longing
- Read: Luke 2:22-40; Isaiah 26:3; Isaiah 40:31; Revelation 21:1-5
- He came; He comes; He is coming.
- What is the real desire of your heart?
- Are you living with the hope and anticipation that God will satisfy your longings?
- Are you fully present and tuned in to what God is doing around you right now?
