In our quote above, Octavius Winslow is pointing out one of two “issues” folks have with desires in this life. The one we have written about many times is the perverted idea that God grants any and all desires of a “believer’s” heart. Folks will usually use the scriptures listed below to justify those claims. However, as the author of the article Scripture about Desire KJV (see below) points out it is ALWAYS about God and NEVER About us.
10 Bible Verses about Desire
- Psalm 37:4 ESV
- Proverbs 10:24 ESV
- Matthew 5:6 ESV
- Jeremiah 29:13 ESV
- Proverbs 2:3-5 ESV
- 1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV
- Luke 10:42 ESV
- Psalm 145:19 ESV
- Romans 13:13-14 ESV
- Lamentations 3:25 ESV
Winslow rightly continues to point out that the slightest gain is HUGE compared to our former state.
But one real view of Jesus,
one corruption subdued,
one temptation vanquished,
one worldly fetter broken,
one sunbeam of holy joy shining upon the soul—
is a victory achieved, a spiritual blessing possessed,
more momentous that the taking of a city, and
more enriching that the conquest of a world.
It may be through deep trial, in the face of
powerful opposition and beset by great weakness
—that the advanced step has been made.
Nevertheless, it has brought the heart nearer
to God, has transcribed some lineament of
Jesus on the soul, and is so much actual gain
in the believer’s progress towards, and in his
fitness for heaven.
