God Connect: Daily Renewing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

The Desires of Your Heart

on March 6, 2012

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work unto you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”  Philippians 1:6

Sometimes it can be very frustrating to not know what God is doing in your life.  He promises that He’s working all things for your good or promises that He has begun a good work in you and will perform it unto the day of Jesus Christ.  We may understand God has promised those things to us, but until we see them it can get a little hard to keep believing.

It’s in our times of frustration and difficulty waiting that we need to draw closer to the Lord.  Instead of dwelling on the uncertainty of seeing God’s plan for our lives, we can focus our time and energy on getting to know the Lord and who He is.  Psalm 37:4 encourages us to “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

Today I challenge you to find confidence in the Lord and in the promises He’s made for your future, yet don’t allow yourself to get caught up chasing after the plans He has.  Stop worrying and delight yourself in Him, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”  Psalm 37:5
