Lecture 6, The Desires of Your Heart:
People are profoundly shaped by their desires and dreams. This is why Proverbs 4:23 exhorts, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Any object, person, or idea that finds a foothold in a person’s heart has a profound capacity to influence how that person will think and act. This is often the way that sinful desires lead to sinful lifestyles. However, godly desires can also bear significant fruit in a person’s life. As Psalm 37:4 declares, those who make God their greatest delight will not fail to receive what their hearts desire.
