"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.

    Philosophers and writers have long pointed out that without hope mankind would long be gone. The philosopher Victor Frankly who survived the Holocaust where he lost his entire family found hope was the most important weapon that enabled him come out alive. He wrote, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how!”
Hope can sustain any of us through the darkest of times. This is what happened to Job when he lost everything he possessed. “Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face” (Job 13:15).

    King David when he was being pursued by his enemies never lost hope. “For you have been my hope, sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth” (Psalm 71:5). The Apostle Paul who faced countless perilous times during his missionary journeys including jail and shipwrecks never lost hope. Writing to the Corinthians he reminded them, “He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” (2 Cor 1:10-11).

    As believers God has given us hope that our lives are not empty and meaningless, like so many others. He has given us the hope to carry us through the lowest of moments. “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope” (Psalm 130:5).
    Today, may that hope that you have in Christ sustain you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

    Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray in the wonderful name of Jesus that the hope I have in you lifts me up and sustains me in all situations as a conquer, in whose name I pray.
