It is God who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. Philippians 2:13 AMPC
Good pleasure? Satisfaction? Delight? That is all I ever wanted—to be in a relationship where I am seen, wanted, and loved. Those are powerful, powerful influences. When experienced, they allow an image bearer to eventually partner with God in wielding them. But we must ask the Father to help us first experience them for ourselves before we can offer them with great freedom and transforming impact to others. He is the only One who sees us clearly, wants us more than we can imagine, and loves us for both who we are and who we have it in us to become.
This is what every boy hopes for, what every heart longs for: to be loved. Love is the foundation, the bedrock every man needs in order to become a good king.
