The ‘Wonder Women 1984’ movie that released in December 2020 is a great reminder to us all about what happens to the world when all people have their desires come true. It seemed a great idea at first to hold the ‘dream stone’ and see your wildest wishes unfold before your eyes, but that did not last long.
You see, our desires, mostly, spring from a sinful nature. They are no pure and genuine. What we want is usually power, dominion, control, more riches than all, and pleasures on others expense. That’s how wars have started, not just WW1 and WW2 but wars in the family, marriage, friendship, business and churches.
God in his wisdom grants very few of us what we desire, just so we can see and learn and experience the ire of our wanting. He protects us, he is patient with us, he is loving to the very end.
“Seek first the kingdom, and all these things will be given,” Jesus said.
When we seek God first and foremost, he always gives us more than we can dream or imagine. ( Matthew 6:33)
