What do you want? What do you really want? Do you really want it? I mean not like you have to have it and if you don’t get it you feel like a fish without gills, but you really want and desire it.
Is your soul guiding you to want it? Are you afraid to want it because you may not get it? Let’s face it, no one likes disappointment.
What if God wants you to have it too? Do you we really know what God wants us to have? Doesn’t He give us certain desires?
Yes, I believe He does. The key is to line those desires (wants) up with God’s will for your life.
If the want and His will diametrically oppose each other, they self-destruct and then you will not want it anymore anyway.
If your deepest want is your biggest dream, bring the power of God to make it come true. In fact, it is true already. You just have to live as if it happened while exercising the wisdom the good Lord endowed upon us.
Make sure your wants line up with His desires for His children. Commit to it if you know it is right and it creates mutual blessing and watch it unfold in His timing.
It says in the book of wisdom (Proverbs) the desire of the righteous will be granted, Proverbs 10:24.
Ask God if it is not His will for you to have such a desire or want, ask Him to remove it from your heart and have it wash away faster than a smashed bag of crackers washes away when opened and tossed into the surf.
If it is good you will have it. If you do not get it you’ll be shown why it would not have been good for you.
Don’t be shy, don’t be afraid. Be bold. Ask for it. Get ready for it. Embrace it, bury fear. Allow faith to make it happen.
Be patient. If it is worth having, it is worth waiting for.
I don’t often evaluate what my wants are. Thanks for reminding me to think about them, ask Him and then wait expectantly. Love the bag of crackers analogy.
Wants are a good thing and God wants us to have good things and desires. He created desires. I encourage you to take some time to think about them and smile when doing so 🙂
As for the crackers, I was picturing that little package of crackers that you get when you order a Wendy’s chili and it ends up smashed in the bottom of the glove box
I was just asking God to have someone treat me to the movies tonight or the next time I go, I am wondering if he wants me to have that or just wants me to have crackers.
The Boss, 7:40 tonight.
He gave me what I wanted and aligned with the Lord.
A caring ,loving and godly husband.
Praise the Lord Normalicious! Walk as One.
