My soul yearns for you

Isaiah 26:9
My soul yearns for you in the night; my spirit within me earnestly seeks you. 
For when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.

What is your soul's desire? What do you yearn for? What does your spirit seek?

These are the questions I ask myself. Do I desire a future spouse, money, fame, respect from others, or health?

Many of these things are good things and rightly so, it is ok to desire them but if they become ultimate things, then we miss the mark, i.e. they become idols. 

Isaiah says in this verse, he yearns for God in the night, and his spirit within him earnestly seeks God. How about you? And why does Isaiah yearn for God? 

Because then God's judgments will be in the earth, and the people in the world will learn righteousness as the second half of the verse indicates.
