Recently, I was chatting with a college friend of mine and I was talking about some dreams that I’d started to lose faith on. Not completely… I just started to doubt whether God had that in store for me. My friend said something though that really resonated with me. She told me that she believes, “God doesn’t put desires on our hearts if he doesn’t plan to fulfill them.”
It’s hard to not rush to God with a ”want-list” whether it’s job promotion, a new opportunity, a spouse or maybe even the blessing of a child. We (myself included) have to remember to not lose heart. Psalm 37:7 commands us to, “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.” Some keywords there…WAIT and PATIENTLY. Perhaps, your desires may change with time or an even bigger desire comes about. Or maybe God just has a different time table than you.
You know what though? My friend is right. God does fulfill the desires of our hearts. Those and EVEN MORE!
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
