My Heart’s Desire

 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:10
Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. — Psalm 37:4-5
Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it. — Deuteronomy 10:14

To God be the glory!

God is our Supplier. He supplies all our needs according to His riches — He owns cattle on a thousand hills — to Him belong heaven and earth and all that is in it. Is there anything you need that He cannot supply? The Bible says “no”.

Sometimes though, we want. Does God give us our wants? Sometimes . . .

My husband and I are on a fixed income due to my not working so I can care for my Mom. My daughter is getting married and the plan was for a very simple wedding. Bride, groom, and two witnesses with my husband doing the ceremony. Well, my Mom and I are here now to celebrate this covenant marriage which means more family members wanting to be present and as word gets out more and more want to be a part.

Back to finances. I desire to make my daughter’s special day a precious memory and so to prayer I went.

Bottom line — God has supplied what is needed to make it a special event financially. I did a little investigating as to how much supplies would be and the store I went to has all wedding paraphernalia at 50% off. Is my God amazing or what?!!!!  I delight myself in the Lord and He gives me the desires of  my heart. Be clear that the desire of our heart is really the desire of God’s heart made manifest through us. Just as we give special treats to those we love, God sometimes gives us special treats too.

I commit my way to You my Lord and trust in You. Thank You for fulfilling this desire of my heart. To You Lord God be the glory!

Continually seeking Him,

Fear of the Lord

O fear the Lord, you His saints; For to those who fear Him there is no want. The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good thing. Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. — Psalm 34:9-11

O fear the Lord – “worship Him and make conscience of your duty to Him in everything, not fear and shun Him but fear and seek Him”.* Fear the Lord, you His saints – people of God^; believers^; godly ones«.

We, His children, in seeking our Lord find all we want. He fulfills every desire we have in Him. Not the desires of our sinful flesh but the desires that come from our personal walk with Jesus. We are satisfied because our hearts seek the heart of God, truly being what we want.

The Word promises that those who seek the Lord will not be in want of any good thing. He does not withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly. How do we walk uprightly? By fearfully seeking Him and keeping His commandments. Remember that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

The Lord gives grace and glory and His praise endures forever.

Continually seeking Him,

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 84:1
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever. — Psalm 11:10
