Class 8: Celebrating a New Life
As you continue to cleanse your relationship from the inside out, you will discover that God is removing the old desires from your heart and giving you new ones. The words of the psalm, "Trust in the Lord and do good, and he shall give you the desires of your heart" (37:3) become a living reality in our lives.
In giving up selfish desires to get what we want, to control others, and to force our spouse to conform to our view of reality, we come together in love to create and to live in the new vision that God has given us.
This is a new earth, a married life that is filled with and directed by heavenly desires--the desires that God puts into our hearts; the visions that God puts into our minds.
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away." Revelation 21:1
"And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy.Your old men shall dream dreams. Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and maidservants. I will pour out My Spirit in those days." --Joel 2:28,29
"So far as anyone indulges in the lusts of the flesh, he is a beast and an animal; But so far as he takes delight in the desires of the spirit, he is a human being and an angel."
"And He shall give you the desires of your heart" --Psalm 37:
