Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart
Are you holding onto a God-sized dream? One so big that you are afraid to say it out loud? One that will need the push and power of God behind it to come true?
Keep believing! When our joy is in serving Jesus, He gives us the things that our hearts desire. When we prioritize His kingdom and His righteousness, He adds the things that we need – and even desire – to our lives.
Keep asking, and He will give it to you. Keep seeking, and He will be found. Keep knocking, and He will open the right door at the right time – doors that no one else can shut. If our earthly, very human, fathers relish giving wonderful, long-anticipated gifts to us, imagine how God exults to give us good gifts when we ask.
Ephesians 3:20 teaches that the Holy Spirit of God is already working deep inside of us to bring about the answer to those far-fetched prayers. His Word assures us that He is able to do exceedingly abundantly, far beyond what we could drum up in our imaginations or would even dare to ask. Our highest hopes and deepest dreams do not raise His eyebrows.
What are you expecting God to do? Don’t lose heart! Every day unfolds with new mercy and delightful surprises when we walk with Him. Wait expectantly for the gift that will answer your prayers and make Your Father smile.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May the power of the Holy Spirit be at work inside of you to bring about the God-sized dream that He dropped in your heart. May you wait with expectancy for a God Who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above anything you can imagine. Let it be so!
