Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart
Raise your hand if you love instant gratification? We often want things immediately. Have you ever asked God for something and it seemed as if he would never grant you your desires? Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. There are times when God tells us no, because he sees things that we can’t. Sometimes the things that we wanted so badly would have destroyed us or moved us away from God’s will for our lives. BUT, there are also times when were not being told no, perhaps NOT YET. Looking back, there have been so many times when I asked God for something and I didn’t get it when I asked but eventually at the perfect time I received the desires of my heart. In those moments, I was able to look back and see that God’s timing is perfect! We often want things that were not mentally, spiritually or even physically ready for. While you may feel as if you’re not being heard, you may very well be in your season of preparation. Instead of being impatient or resentful, allow God to prepare you for your blessings. Even if the answer is no, trust Him! Understand that God wants the best for you, the “no” or the “not yet” is for your protection. In the meantime put your faith in Jesus and find peace in knowing that what’s for you is for you!
