I have had a burning issue on my heart and that issue is sharing what is there. So many times we allow our desires are left to nothing because we don’t share with anyone or make it known what is actually on our hearts. In James 4:2 the bible says you do not have because you do not ask. Why is this, are we afraid of what people might say or are we afraid because we think the answer would be no? Whatever the reason is we need to surrender those thoughts and allow God to work in our lives.
To help you get started let me share with you a desire on my heart. Lately I have been under a lot of stress because of my efforts raising funds for our Philippines trip in November. As a pastor I understand what the bible has to say about trusting in God for everything and I keep using the excuse that I am human and I will fall. True, I am human and I will fall from time to time but that is no excuse for not doing what the bible says. With all of those thoughts on my mind, I watched Joel Osteen the other night and he said that we need to be positive and think positive if we want to receive from God what we are searching for.
That statement began to resonate inside of me and I realized that my stress was negative and not positive. God has called us to the Philippines and He has never let us down with our fund raising or meeting goals. You might ask what does that have to do with the desires of your heart? Well, I will tell you as you thought I might. The desire of my heart is to be like Jesus. To be positive in everything and to know that I know that I am what I speak. My desire is to be positive in every word that comes out of my mouth. When someone asks me if I am feeling good and though I may not, I am going to speak into existence good health. If someone asks me how my finances are, I am going to say that I have everything I need. I am going to speak into existence what it is regardless of what it may look like.
The desire on my heart is to have the Wisdom of Solomon and to be able to speak to every situation not only in my life but in others’ lives as well. I know that God called me to Prophecy and Healing that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to call those things that are not as though they were. I will speak life into my life, your life, and thousands of others life’s as well.
Now you know one of the desires of my heart. It was not hard to share it and I know that by sharing it God will open the necessary doors for that desire to have life. I am in control of my life and I choose to have Jesus live my life as I am obedient to do what He has called me to do. I am going to speak life and not death, good and not bad, love and not hate. I am nothing special nor do I think because of what God has called me to do I have a step up. No, I am just like you and probably with more problems, but I know what God says in the bible and I am going to follow that bible letter by letter.
You have the power inside of you if you are a follower of God to speak life into your life. Get away from comments like, “Oh I can’t do that and start saying I can. Stop saying that everything around me is falling down and start saying I am a child of God and whatever I ask for in His name I shall have. Let others know your desires because you never know that person you tell may be the very person that God has chosen to help you fulfill that desire. There is no desire too small, too complicated, to foolish that God won’t help you through it. If you will speak positive and like I said call those things that are not as though they were, you will see a mighty change in your life in your health in your family and in everything that you put your hand to. You are a Joseph and everything that you touch turns to a blessing. Believe it and know that God is who He says He is. Speak life into your life and like I have already found, everything falls into place and the stress goes away.
The bible says in Matthew 7:7-8, ask and you shall receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened. “For ALL who asks receives, to ALL who seeks they will find and to ALL who knock the door will be opened” (paraphrase) Put your faith into action and open the doors to unbelievable blessings from God.
