Why You Long to Be Fascinated
“Your eyes will see the King in His beauty…” (Isa. 33:17)
There is a craving in your spirit to marvel and be awestruck, to be filled with wonder. God made you that way. Unfortunately, the same longings of our souls are the root of our addictions. What’s more, the entertainment and advertisement industry understands our cravings (and profits from them). They prey on our ‘emotional’ shopping behaviors and cash on our hunger for fascinating stories. Have doubts? Think about your favorite form of entertainment and ask: Why is it so attractive and appealing? What’s the emotional reward of the exchange? And why at times I find myself over doing it? The reason we get drunk with entertainment is rather simple: we have a profound need for mental engagement. We need to engage and be engaged, we hunger for new discoveries and fresh encounters—it is how we are wired. When God reveals God to the human spirit we experience “divine entertainment” at its highest. That’s why David wrote:“One thing I desired…all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD.” (Ps. 27:4) His heart was preoccupied with God while his hands were occupied with
leading Israel. Without having a sense of awe, you will live aimlessly and in boredom. A spiritually bored believer is weak and vulnerable to Satan, but a fascinated believer is strong and equipped to face temptation. Much Blessings Pablo Perez
