Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The Blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 37:4, 5, “Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your ways unto the Lord trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass. ”
From the above context we see that God expects us to trust in Him. God wants us to commit our ways unto the Lord. Then all our desires will be fulfilled. Many of you who are reading this message are hurt in your mind that things are not working as you expected. Though you received many promises only a few were fulfilled. You are still waiting for the rest to happen. As a result your heart is troubled. The Lord never rejects the desires of your heart. He hears your prayers and answers them when you are badly in need of the blessing. He gives you, what you request when you are capable of receiving it. God knows when the desire of your heart should be fulfilled. In case He answers your request immediately then you may disregard the blessing that is granted to you at an earlier period. The Lord does not want you to lose the blessings that He gives you, just as Esau lost the blessings from his father by giving away his birth right to his brother Jacob for a bowl of porridge just to fill his hunger.
Never say that God is bad just because God had not answered to your prayers. The Lord is good, so He waits for the right time to answer your prayers.
He is longing to bless you. The Bible says, it pleased the Lord to bless Israel. Yes You are His beloved children. You are Israel. The Psalmist says, The Lord will fulfil the desire of those who fear Him. He also will hear their cry and save them.” That is the nature of God. The Lord may not give it to you as you are not, matured enough to receive that blessing for which you desire or pray for. When God finds you fit for receiving the blessing and you will be able to handle it carefully then the Lord will grant you, your petition. You may be of age but you may not have the experience, to handle the situation. God sees if you are broadminded and matured enough to handle hard situation that might arise when you receive the blessing.
So all you need to do is to ask the Lord to grant you the maturity to receive the blessing. Secondly ask God to give you the grace to preserve the blessings that God gives to you. The Bible says, the blessings of the Lord rests upon the head of the righteous. You need to be righteous to receive God’s blessing. You cannot be unrighteous and claim for God’ blessing. Thirdly ask God to forgive you of all your sins. And give up all those things that do not please God. Finally ask God to prepare your heart to accept what God gives you and use it wisely and carefully. So you got to uproot your past sinful nature and become perfect, holy and righteous before this Holy God in order for God to bless you with the desires of your heart. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, we are glad to realize that you wait for us, to get matured in order that we may receive the Blessings. Thank you Lord for instructing us to be righteous. also perfect in our behaviour. Make us holy for we ourselves cannot become holy. Let the Holy Spirit cleanse us thoroughly and make us fit to receive the desires of the heart.
