Your life’s longing, your life’s desires are not really going to come together until you become a person that yearns for Him in the night, that longs for Him in the morning. I love the old hymn that says, “When morning gilds the skies, my heart (my life vitality, the very core of my being) awakening cries, May Jesus Christ be praised.” You know, my prayer for everyone of you, is that you know the sweetness of having your head on your pillow at night and being in love with the Lord, to be able to talk to him, to be able to pour out to Him all your problems, to be able to lie there at night in the darkness and to, deep in your soul, have closeness with Him. All the other closeness that you have, brothers and sisters, flows out of the vertical closeness you have with Him. Allowing the Spirit of God to give us an overwhelming passion for Jesus will overcome the dark passions that cause us to covet.
