Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. (Psalm 37:4, AMP)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In the Psalms, it talks about the secret petitions of our heart. These are the hidden dreams that you havent told anybody about. One way you know theyre from God is that theyre so big you cannot accomplish them on your own. God does this on purpose so that it will take faith. Faith is what pleases God. Faith is what allows Him to do the impossible. So God will put something big before you where you dont have all the talent, the education, the connections or the confidence. God will even allow certain obstacles that we cant overcome on our own.
Today, if youve been believing God for something that seems like its taking a long time, dont give up! Remember, God knows exactly where you are. He knows the desires Hes placed within you. Hes working things together for your good. Hes promised to finish what He started, and as you delight yourself in Him, He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart!
A Prayer for Today
Father, I humbly come to You today, giving You all that I am. Thank You for fulfilling every desire in my heart. Mold me and shape me into Your image. Remove anything from my life that is displeasing to You so that everything I do brings glory to You in Jesus name. Amen.
