It’s Christmas and God wants to give you the desires of your heart. God isn’t stingy like Scrooge, withholding your needs. He doesn’t have a grumpy disposition like the Grinch, who is trying to find a way to steal your joy. He is good and is both able and willing to bless you with good gifts. It says in the Amplified Bible in Ephesians 3:20, “Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to[carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]”
These words, superabundantly, far over, and above are referring to His generosity towards us. But it says that all that we dare ask or think, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams are brought about by the power that is at work within us. What is this power that is working within us that activates his generosity towards us? It is the power of true faith.
Faith is trust, and this trust is going beyond just basic needs but being confident that He is willing to give you the desires of your heart. 1John 5:14-15 says, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”
Let me share a testimony how God gave me my heart’s desire.
We are missionaries living in Guatemala. We have 4 energetic young boys ages 9, 10, 11, and 12 years old. We live in a small pueblo with a yard that is about 15’ x 70’ in size. My heart’s desire is that our boys have a bigger yard with space to run and play and just be the active boys that they are.
I boldly asked God to give me my heart’s desire. He did! In a few days, we are moving to a new home that is built in the midst of a 100 acre forest. This is, superabundantly, far over, above and 100 times bigger than my dream.
There is an actual gift for you from God with your heart’s desire. Ask in faith, dare to believe, and you will receive.
