“May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God.May the Lord grant all your requests” ( Psalm 20:4-5).
Everyone has desires in his heart. And in most instances other than for basic desires – such as having a job- individuals differ in their desires. One could have the desire to build a certain house. Another person to raise a certain type of family.
When we bring our desires to God we are reminded that God will heed to them “in accordance to His will!” This comes through the Lord’s prayer- “thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven!”
One thing believers should rest assured of is that God is as just as interested in our desires. When one walks with God; He also places certain desires in one’s heart. This is why God equips the one who desires to be a preacher with oratorical gifts. All the desires God puts in our lives are for a purpose. There are also for a specific time.
Young Moses had a desire to liberate the Israelites from their bondage. After his initial failed attempt it would take 40 years for that desire to be realized. In a sense it had never been just Moses’s desire. It was also God’s desire.
So, friend, if you have a desire, so long as it is from God, rest assured that He will make it pass in His time. And just as David sang, then, we “shall shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God!”
Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, you have placed desires in my heart, and today I pray you grant them in accordance to your will, and let the saints rejoice, this I pray in Jesus’ name.
