Psalm 112: the death of desire

Take a look at Psalm 112.

Imagine even the desire of the wicked perishing.

A French psychiatrist (quoted in Wim Rietkerk’s book “If Only I Could Believe”) said that the essense of being human is desire. We are desires.

Now imagine every desire being for God and the expansion of his goodness. Eventually, that desire will be fulfilled, and there will be no need for desire. Wicked desires will die, good desires will be fulfilled, and desire will be no more.

In perfect fellowship with our Creator, we will be what we are, and not what we desire.
