Instant Gratification

Oswald Chambers saw a strong connection between our desire for the immediate and lust: “Lust simply means, ‘I must have this at once’; it may be a bodily appetite or a spiritual possession. . . I cannot wait for God’s time, God is too indifferent; that’s the way lust works.”

We live in a world that worship the immediate. When it seems there is no sign of our deepest longings being fulfilled, the psalmist urges us to cling to the eternal Lord (Ps. 27:14).
