Here Is My Wish List God 

JULY 23, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Psalm 21:2 Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

      Oh my, what a promise this verse has for us to claim. That God would give us all the requests of our lips. Whatever our hearts desire we could have. A new car, new house, better health, fancy clothes, jewelry, or just anything we might toss out into the throne room of Heaven. God will pick up our shopping list, fill it, and send it back. You might be saying to yourself, “This is not how my prayer life always works.” Yea, well not mine either. However, this is what all too many preachers seem to be saying today. So, what is the difference? Where is the problem?

     The difference is our understanding of the who, what, where, and when of the text of the verse. Before you can understand this verse, you need to understand about whom it was written. This was David. A man described as someone after God’s own heart. David was not requesting earthly possessions to consume upon his own fancy. So, what was God giving to David? He would give all the things David would ask for according to God’s Heart. Too often, we get our eyes on us and ask for things for us. However, David wanted only what God wanted. Therefore, God was glad to provide it.

   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

     Do you desire the things God desires? Things such as people to be saved, lives to be changed, the helpless to be helped, Missions to be taken care of, disciples to be made, and churches to be filled with people to praise and worship God. Are these the major parts of your desires? If so, God might love to give you the desires of your heart too.
