We often portray God as a giving grandparent, our birthday fairy, or Santa Claus who gives us everything that our minds think of. How many times have you heard someone say that God promises to give us the desires of our hearts? The last part of one my Bible reading this morning says that God will give you the desires of your heart. It is the previous part of the verse that is often left off. Our desires can be fulfilled by God when we live in a manner that pleases Him. (Psalm 37:3-5 Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. 4. Delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this:) We need to allow God to give us desires that pleases Him for our life. God delights in doing small and large things for us and we should never fail to appreciate all of them. God puts in us desires that will bring His righteousness, peace, and joy to our lives and they never disagree with His Word. Wrong desires torment us, and we are impatient about receiving them, but sanctified desire comes with a willingness to wait on God’s ways and timing. Place your desires before God, pray about them and trust God to give them to you if and when they are right for you. Pastor Don
