Delight and Desire

Our granddaughter was told while waiting to go into surgery that she could have a popsicle when she woke up. We also told her she could eat anywhere because she kept saying how hungry she was. But she kept mentioning that she wanted a chocolate chip cookie. She got the popsicle and enjoyed it. Finally when we left she decided she wanted a hamburger, so of course she got a hamburger! But there by the register were fresh chocolate chip cookies, so guess what? She got one! And she ate it first! The hamburger was finished off in the car but the cookie was devoured. That’s what her heart longed for and it was provided for her.

We know what we want don’t we? Sometimes it can get real frustrating to have a desire for something and not see it happen. But God knows our hearts and He promises that, as we find our delight in Him, He will give us the desires of our hearts.

Oh beloved, you are not part of a mystical magical hopeful system. You are part of a supernatural kingdom. A kingdom that cannot be shaken. God has made promises to you more profound and magnificent than can be imagined. You have desired to see things come to pass but you are still waiting. Has God forgotten or is He working something more wonderful into your life? Either way you win! Either way your needs will be provided for and your life will be more than amazing. Every promise of God is real because God is real! Every hope, dream and aspiration you have is known by Him. Whether it’s the longing for significance, love, friendship, success, purpose or simply the answer to prayers for loved ones.

Can you trust Him today? To give you what you need? To provide supernatural abundance to you in spite of the wait for and longing of your heart? Of course! No good thing will He withhold from you because you walk uprightly – you put your delight in Him and follow Him with your whole heart. So between the waiting and the reality of life, what will you do? You will get closer to the Lord! You will keep going forward with Him! You will trust and not be afraid. You are not being mistreated by God while you wait and walk with Him. You are being rescued from what isn’t important and being transported into the supernatural ways of the King of your heart! You are a winner, a victor, a champion and are receiving answers to your hopes and dreams that are beyond your wildest imagination. God always does His best for His own! And you belong to Him!

God loves you and He’s for you. Another supernatural statement for supernatural children of the Lord. How wonderful to know that whatever you hope for, God is going to give you what you ask for or something far better! Rejoice and run to him this morning. Tell Him you trust Him because He is real and His Kingdom is real and His Word is real. Praise Him for all His good gifts and promises and live in the Light of His extraordinary life plan for you!

Psalm 37:3-4 Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 84:11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly

Psalm 4:5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the LORD.

About Rebekah Beene

In a Women’s meeting in 1983, I went up for prayer and to see if God had “anything for me”. The woman of God who was praying for people spoke over my life. She said these words: “You will write books. You can go to the bank on it. Rivers of living water will flow from your belly…”
