Day 18

Psalm 37:3-4

Trust in the Lord and do good;

   dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Take delight in the Lord,

   and he will give you the desires of your heart

What’s your heart’s desire? What is that dream that you’ve held onto since you were a kid? What were the things you resolved to do before you hit a landmark birthday? 

God wants to give you the desires of your heart. But do you know something? When we become a follower of Jesus our hearts desire changes, because when you let God in, you’re allowing him into your heart to save you, and nourish you, heart and soul so you can flourish. When you let God in, your motivation changes, instead of looking at what we can get out of life, we start looking at how can we serve God in life to the best of our ability, with his strength and guidance. 

PS. You may think the desire of your heart hasn’t ever changed, think again. When you trust God, do good and dwell in him he takes your hearts desires and transforms them into more than you could ever imagine for yourself… because suddenly the plans you have aren’t just yours anymore, they’re for his glory.
