Getting What Your Heart Desires
I used to sit while reading my devotionals and bible wanting to feel what was being described. The overflow of joy, blessings, peace, God's presence and unfailing love. I wanted all of that so bad and I thought I never would. I felt that I was not good enough or I was a hot mess to experience what God gives. But God has a plan indeed
" For I know the plans I have for you,"Declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11).
The Word Women Conference that our church holds really changed my life. I was lucky because at the last minute I had money to register and I was able attend. Mrs. Denise told me the Sunday before to walk in there with a open heart and open mind, I didn't think I could do that. But I kept telling myself that over and over in my head and I walked in there with a open heart and open mind. I walked out a new women, new creation and joyful. That joy has been with me from the time I left til now and I praise God because I thought I would never feel this way. God made sure I was at that conference because he meet me there and filled me with his living water ( his spirit). He made sure that I became aware of who he was and who's I was ( my new name is awareness) it fits me perfectly. There I learned I have a purpose and I am able of all that God has for me and so are you. You may be in the same boat I was in and I want to encourage you to think differently. It is okay to desire something, but it is not okay to think you can not have it. That is what the enemy wants you to think and feel he comes to steal, kill and destroy. As children of God we are privileged with a lot of gifts from God, when we think we cant receive them or we are not good enough God is not pleased. He sent his only son Jesus Christ to die for us so we can live a rich and satisfied life and we take it for granted. God loves you and he knows what your heart desires and please understand he will give it to you. You just have to let all of that negativity and the lies of the enemy go in order to be filled by him. I am telling you because I was once there and I am now sitting here restored and in love with God and my life.
He has already planted a seed in you because you are desiring more of him. Nurture that seed with his word and be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Knowing and believing who you are and what power lies within you. I want you to write this prayer down and place it somewhere you can see everyday.
" The spirit of the lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the lord."
I want you to personalize this Scripture and put your name in it. So everyday you can read of the great things God has in store for you. Your desires will not only be meet he will give you more simply because you are his child and he loves you.
