Hold on to DESIRE

1 Corinthians 16: 8-9

Hold on to DESIRE


In any situation, it is easier to be amongst friends than enemies. Your friends, support, love, and care for you. While your enemies are always thinking of ways to defeat you… Your enemies will teach you things your friends will not nor cannot.


In 1 Corinthians 16:8-9, as Paul is in Ephesus, he acknowledges his enemies and the fact they do not want him there. This is intriguing to Paul, as he sees this as an opportunity (“a great and effective door has opened for me”) in spite of the “man” adversaries opposing him.


Paul decided to “tarry”… wait in the posture of anticipation and expectation. We need to operate in this same level of faith… realizing when and if we face opposition, it might not be we are out of the “will of God” or in a “bad place”… In fact, this could be an indicator you are in the right place.


Too many people give up just before their harvest. They get tired of the fight or weary in the battle. Paul tells us to tarry… We need to build our strength in the word, Keep our faith in focus, and hold on to your dreams and vision with perseverance and determination… We need to hold on to desire until the harvest comes… Proof of desire is in your pursuit.
