He is ever so near to us, even hovering over our shoulders. He knows our every thought. The world makes us think that our thoughts are worthless, but our thoughts are precious to Jesus. He smiles when we think lovingly of Him. His Spirit helps us to think His thoughts. As we think, so goes our entire being.
When we allow Jesus to be our Focus, we learn God and experience Joy. He created us this way. He planted that longing in our souls, knowing that He would be the only thing to fully satisfy it. Possessions, activities, even ministry cannot fulfill those longings. Only Jesus can. The Bible says that if we delight ourselves in Him, he will give us the desires of our hearts. (Psalm 37:4 paraphrase). And by the “desires of our hearts,” He means that He becomes the sole desire of our hearts and we are no longer slaves to the desires of the world.
