Our Heart’s Desire

Solomon in 2 Chronicles 1 was asked by God what he wanted (v. 7). What would be your request? Would it build up the body of Christ? In asking this question, we are trying to discover our hearts desire. Solomon simply asks God for wisdom and knowledge to lead and because God was pleased with the request, He gave Solomon not only this request but also wealth, riches, and honor.

What gift would you most like to receive now? What God gives in a plan for life is a treasure and the more you lose yourself in this plan, the more passion you will have. The plan I believe God has given me is to invest in helping others see the benefits of knowing His Word by using skills in writing and technology to help spread the Good News.

My prayer this day with God is to stop thinking my way and start thinking God’s way. Some may lead small lives and argue over small things but not those who follow Christ. Some may leave their future in someone else’s hands but not those who follow Christ. As Christians, we are in His hands. Let us then be happy with this gift God has given and not covet things that are fatal snares to the soul.
