Focus Scripture: Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4
Bible Reading: Psalms 37: 3-7
“So God, make me your example.
Make me a miracle.
I’ll be the miracle.”
I was listening to Tasha Cobbs’ Sense It, usually one of my favorite songs. But not on this day. Today, I wasn’t feeling it. “I don’t want to be the miracle, I don’t want to be Your example, I was wrong, I just want to be regular. I don’t want to be used.” These are the words that I spoke to God.
“I remember” is what I heard whispered back to me. We may forget, but God never forgets the prayers that we pray. Back in 2005, I prayed and asked God to use me to break generational curses in my family. I told Him, I didn’t care how long it took, but His Kingdom would be restored in my family.
What are you believing God for? Have you been praying and waiting and praying some more? Have you, like myself, found yourself frustrated with God, because He is not moving at the speed you think He should?
When our heart’s desire is to do that which is pleasing to God, when we commit our ways to Him and trust Him, His word says He shall bring it to pass (Psalm 37:5). Will it take some time? Yup. Will it be easy? Nope. But will it be worth it? ABSOLUTELY! This is why God instructs us, in verses 7, to rest and wait patiently for Him. Do you actually think the enemy is going to let you off the hook without a fight? We are talking about Kingdom impact here! When we delight in God, He places those things that we should desire in our heart, and that’s when His desires will begin to become our desires.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for reminding me that You haven’t forgotten about me, just as Your word says, You will never leave me nor forsake me. Forgive me Father, for allowing the way I feel to interfere with what I know to be true. You are for me, and You are working everything out for my good, because I love You and You called me for a purpose. I will continue to delight, trust and rest in You. It is in your son, Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
