Do You Really Believe That?

Do you believe that God actually wants to give you the desires of your heart?  Do you believe that He really does want the best for you?  Do you trust that you life is better in His control than in yours?  

The desires of your heart…we hear this verse being quoted all the time, right???  The interesting this is what comes before and after this sentence.  This verse is out of Psalm 37

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

The first thing says to trust in the Lord and do good.  It then goes on to say to dwell in the lang and cultivate faithfulness, take delight in the Lord.  There are things that precede the desires of our hearts.  And when we do these things our desires begin to be God’s desires.  It’s not that all of a sudden we get we want.  Our desires become His desires.  Our hearts change and we love what He loves and hate what He hates.  The verse then continues with;

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this.

Commit your ways, that means we give our lives and our ways to the one who created us.  Begin to let the Lord dictate was is going on in your life, trust Him with your life and be ready for your life to be radically altered.  You will begin to tell some crazy stories of how the Lord has shown up in your life.  He’s faithful, He desires to take care of us.  He’s a good God…always.  He never changes!!!!  Begin to live this out….watch out though, you will never be the same.
