Desires are more than mere wishes; they have the potential to shape our lives. When they are grounded in righteousness and align with God’s will, then they become a powerful force that brings transformation and blessings into our lives.
Our opening text today reminds us that the first step in receiving from God is desire. This speaks of having a strong affinity, longing or inclination towards something, which later becomes a subject of our prayers. When we pray about what we desire with faith in our hearts, then we receive what we desire from God.
This exposes the reason why some do not receive from God. It is either they do not develop strong desires for the object of their prayer, or they do not even pray about their desires. Some others may pray without faith in their hearts and therefore fail to receive. However, when we pray with faith in our hearts about our desires, we have an assurance of being heard, and we receive our testimony.
Therefore, as you set out today, be diligent about aligning your desires to the Word, and in faith, make your requests known unto God in prayer. By so doing, you will enter into God’s provisions for you today and have a reason to testify!
