When Your Desire Meets God’s Purpose

  • Article Image Alt Text

Does God give us what we desire? God knows what is best for you and He hears the desires of your heart. He will give you the desires of your heart when the time is right. Have patience and trust in the Lord.

Psalm 37 says “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.’

When we commit ourselves to God then He can do the work in us that He so desires. “Commit” is a word that in Hebrew literally means “to roll”. Genesis 29:3 and Psalms 22:8-9 use the idea of “rolling” something to the Lord. The idea is completely giving something over to God while depending on Him. When we ”commit” our works to the Lord, we are offering everything we do completely to Him. Withholding nothing, giving everything in our life to God.

When we follow after God then we can see His hand at work in our lives. The bible tells us that “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord” show us that God has given directions as to the way his people should walk (i.e., live) in this world. God’s Word is our road map for the Christian life.

When your life has become unmanageable and you cannot see the end, then try praying and asking God to help you, to give you direction and guidance, He will.

When we learn to trust God with every aspect of our lives it is then that our desires meet Gods purpose for our lives. Until you are living in God’s purpose, you will never see the desires of your heart. For truly our hearts desire should be to fulfill God’s will for our lives. So if you find yourself struggling and feeling alone, then turn to the one who can calm the storm, heal the blind and save the wretched sinner. Whatever you are going through He has the answer you need. Be bless in Jesus Name!
