Righteous Desires Lead To Good Results
Did you know that the desire of the righteous ends only in good, but the hope of the wicked only in wrath? That is what Proverbs 11:23 says!
A righteous person desires the glory of God and the good of others, sometimes at personal cost to himself. He delights in God and His ways and because he delights in God, he will receive from God the desires of his heart.
Although we have received the righteousness of Christ, not all our desires are at all times righteous and good, but the power of the Spirit of Christ alive in us overcomes and often puts to death unrighteous desires arising from our flesh.
Finally, it is through His work of grace in us that we are able to grow from glory to glory, more and more into the image of Christ -- the Righteous One.
Yes, righteous desires do lead to good results!
