“Whom have I in heaven but you? And being with you, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever” (Psalm 73:25-26).

When I first encountered that passage, especially the words, “…And being with you, I desire nothing on earth,” I asked the question: What did the writer of the Psalm see or know about God that he was able to say that?

And I told myself, I hope I could also say that to God. I hope I could also see His Great Worth that if I would be with Him, I would no longer desire anything on earth.

Many times I returned to that passage. When I would be tempted to desire so much for something, those words would also help me to re-direct my heart to God. Nothing in this world could even come near the Excellence of God.

Now, as God continuous to unveil His Goodness and Greatness, I am also learning to desire Him more and more. Yes, even more than anything desirable or pleasurable on this earth.
