My path is Known. My needs/wants/desires have been placed before The Lord.
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” –Psalm 37:4
What are the desires of your heart? Your heart’s desires equal everything you secretly dream about, visualize or imagine. They’re not just far-off, impractical wishes or impossible hopes, but they are deeply spiritual in nature.
Maybe you desire to be married or have children. Perhaps you’ve always desired to start a ministry or a business. Or what about financial freedom and abundance? Is that your dream? Whatever the desires of your heart, it’s never too late to receive them. No matter how old you are or how long you’ve been waiting—you can live the life you’ve always dreamed of.
Many Christians wonder if the desires of their heart are God’s will, and rightly so. Before we ever begin pursuing our heart’s desires, we must know they line up with God’s Word and will. The more time you spend with God—seeking Him and obeying His Word—the more certain you will be that your heart’s desires match His will. In fact, when you follow Him, He puts those desires in your heart (Psalm 37:4). They become in sync with His will.
