God wants good things for you. He really does. God wants what is best for you. Really.
God wants to give you, in your life, the good things that are going to bless you and make your life better and more whole.
God longs to do these things for you.
Listen to what Jesus tells us in Luke 12:32-34 today:
“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
But, before we run too far with this, let’s think about what that means. Look at what it says in verse 34. Where our treasure is, there will be our heart.
God wants to give us the kingdom. He wants to give us good things. But first, He wants to change our hearts.
Because what happens is that when He changes our hearts, we want different things. The reason that God will give us the kingdom, after He changes our hearts, is because at that point, what we want is what He wants.
So, today, what is your heart’s desire? Is it God? Is it His kingdom? Is it His life? If so, then today, you will be satisfied. Today, you will find life.
Is your heart’s desire something else. Then you can seek it and find it. But without God as the center of it, the center of your heart and life, you won’t be truly happy.
Today, God wants to change you heart and give you what you truly desire, and truly need.
Him. And His life.
Today, and each day, may God be our hearts desire.
