DESIRES OF THE HEART
“Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:3,4
The Word of God is emphatic: the Lord wants to give those who trust in Him the desires of their hearts. So it is appropriate for us to make a desire list to hand to the Lord.
However, this is not a carte blanche offer to get all those material possessions the carnal nature lusts after. True wealth covers more than money and material things. Wealth is not an end in itself. The Lord blesses us with abundance so that we might “have an abundance for every good work.” 2 Cor. 9:8
His promises include eternal, wonderful, and valuable possessions. These are matters of purpose, provision, and physical well-being. Such things as these truly make us rich. Enduring relationships which inspire us are worth more than gold.
Prayerfully count your blessings.
Is there anything missing? Make up your list, then trust God for your full heritage. Feed on His faithfulness. Abide in the Lord. Seek His Kingdom “rst. Soon your list will be realized, your needs and desires met. The answer is already on its way.
