The Principles of Kingdom Knowledge

Romans 10:17 [After all] the kingdom of God is not a matter of [getting the] food and drink [one likes], but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and [heart] peace and joy in the Holy Spirit [AMP]

The clarity of Apostle Paul’s statement should illuminate our cognitive process through Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves]. What is the excellent and acceptable and flawless will of God, even the thing which is excellent and acceptable and flawless [in His sight for you [AMP].
Providing us the ability to prioritize properly what is important as it relates to the principles of the kingdom.

In the scripture food and drink represent tangible and perishable desires. In granting us our desire’s God wants them to adhere within the standards of His Kingdom.

To ensure we understand what the standard of God’s Kingdom is every Christain must apply 2 Corinthians 5:18. But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him [AMP]

As we apply 2 Corinthians 5:18, we must cultivate and strengthen our faith, with unhindered prayer and thirst for God’s Kingdom. As we mature spiritually, God can open up the abundance of His Kingdom granting us the desires of our heart, because our heart is one with His Will, if we do not seek him with sincerity, our hearts will be influenced by the temptation of desire nested in the daily activity of life.

As our mind, is renewed with the standard that Paul speaks of, our desires will change to that which is pleasing to the Lord, and we will truly attain our hears desires, As we grow in God’s Grace, we will put them in proper perspective
