When we seek our own power and self-interests, they become a substitute for God [remember Eve].
We are to be devoted to God, glorify Him, and do His will. That is what we were created to be and do.
Therefore, it is to desire what God desires, found in Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
And, like David, to have absolute faith in God, to love God’s law and His Word, to be thankful and repentant. God is absolutely powerful and trustworthy and we can depend on His deliverance.
