God Wants To Give You The Desires Of Your Heart

What are some of the desires of your heart? Do you desire to build a school, to start a ministry, to become a stay at home mom, to return to work? All of us have things our hearts desire. Do you believe God wants to give you the things you desire? He absolutely does. God wants to grant the desires of the heart that is surrendered to him. The first step to getting the desires of your heart is making sure your heart aligns with God’s will.

Psalm 37: 4 tell us, “Seek your happiness in the Lord and, and he will give you your heart’s desire. This confirms that we ought to seek him first then he will give us the desires of our heart.

When we come into a right relationship with God, the desires of our heart changes. We begin to desire godly things. Where we might have desired to achieve things for monetary gain, we now want to accomplish things because we want to be his hands and feet on the earth.

Craig Groeschel in his book Alter Ego says this about desire, ” You could say that as we enjoy or delight in God, he shapes our hearts and desires to look like his. Then instead of desire the cravings of our fleshly nature, we learn to crave the kingdom desires of our God”.

If you are connected to God and are living according to his word then the desire of your heart is the desire of his heart and he will have no trouble fulfilling that desire within you because it aligns with his will.

So what are some of the things your heart desire this year?
