Margin notes for 4/19/2KX

Proverbs 19:2 (ESV) Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.

We generally refer to such people as “driven.” They just know they have a desire – and are in constant pursuit – but of what? really, they do not know. There has been precious little reflection on it. They just know they want “something” – and are on an eternal quest to gain it. One wonders if they would even recognize it even if they did obtain it. It is like being hungry, and eating, but knowing you are not satisfied – there is some unidentifiable something you crave – but you do not know what it is. If this is the state of your soul – you will run after things which in the end “misses” the “way”. How we need to pray, and submit our souls to the Father in such circumstances, and not allow ourselves be driven like this. In His Garden are all sorts of delights. If none of them satisfies, we will most certainly end up partaking of what we should not. Fill yourself up more and more on what God HAS provided in your life – and grow to be satisfied that He knows the better provision for you, than your unidentifiable cravings do.
