I can’t do this. But God can!
This is true for absolutely everything we do. But, the bigger the dream, the loftier the goal, the harder the challenge, the more we realize just how true it is!
This verse does NOT mean He gives us everything we want. We can’t claim this verse for a new car, or quote it when we want new shoes. “Well, God wants me to have the desires of my heart and I really want these shoes so He must want me to have them.” No! This is twisted and selfish thinking that we all, at one time or another, are guilty of. God’s main desire for us is not our comfort. Yes, He loves to bless His children and often does give us material things to enjoy. But those things are never to replace our desire for Him!
So what do we delight in? We don’t have to go searching for something to delight in God gives us desires, dreams, passions. He gives us what He knows will bring Him the most glory! He–and He alone–is to be our delight. And He (and He alone) can place that desire in us. He gives us the dreams, passions, the longings for Who we are to be, and what we are to do. He gives us what He knows will bring Him the most glory. And then…He gives us the strength and wisdom to fulfill them!
Trust Him and He will amaze you with indescribable joy!
