Lost Your First Love?
Are you losing the battle with sin and starting to desire the world and the things in the world? If so, the cause of the problem is clear: you have lost connection with the love of God. Years ago, I heard these wise words, “The eye sees what the heart desires.” Without question, the lust for the things of this world is a heart problem. But when we’re walking closely with God, when we are basking in His love and loving Him back, our heart desires fellowship with Him. We are blown away by His mercy and grace. We are thoroughly convinced that His ways are right concerning everything, and we want to walk in those ways, regardless of the hardships. If your heart has drifted from Jesus, Malachi 3:7 is for you. The Lord says, “Return to Me, and I will return to you” (Malachi 3:7). It’s in Jesus alone where you will find REAL HOPE.
