A Prayer of Hope Devotional

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
So you want God to give you the desire of your heart? So do I…. And because of that, I feel led to write and share these scripture affirmations, but I must warn you, this is a journey. And you may have to wait…and you may have to dig further in the word of God. But God will answer you, and give you that desire if it is according to his word, and if you are in the right position.
A question to pose, right off, is….. Do you delight yourself in the Lord? Do you love him, truly love him? Are you seeking him, praying, not ashamed of him? Or ashamed that you are a Christian? A lot of people are not expressing their faith, and feel it is a private thing. And I will just say that is wrong. God wants us to be a light in the world. So others can know him. Only you can reflect within and answer that…..And it is better for you to answer it now, and perhaps change your thinking and behavior, before you stand before him.
But as I write, I sense, how precious each one of you, is to God. And that we each have desires, we all have, in our hearts. Right now, as you read this, there is something, great and special on your heart. No one can judge that, but God. And there is no magic formula, method, or recipe to do this. But there are principles, God has established. According to his word. And I feel led to briefly share with you, that yes, we all seek answers from God. But God is sovereign and holy. He expects that from us. In being obedient, loving him, being prayerful, forgiving, and doing his will. And one thing I have learned from an early age, is not having any idols, or anything that we put before him. Because he is a jealous God.
Knowing these things about God, our father…..We can though, position ourselves, to get an answer from God, so the desire of our heart is met. Never forgetting, that faith is such a great ingredient, and when we have faith, that pleases God. But one must understand and respect that, God is not a magician, or someone who will just give us everything we want. Though he has answered many a prayer, in my heart desires. (Thank you Father) …. I know, because he has withheld many things from me. And in all honesty, I don’t know why some prayers are not answered. This can go on, if especially there is sin that has not been taken to his throne in repentance. (See Psalms 66:18)
But, I want to understand what pleases God. Because I love God with all of my heart soul, and mind. And I discipline myself to try to please him. I want to delight myself in him. In my worship, my actions, my behavior, relationships, everything. And I want to know him, more, than what he can give me. I believe, I have grown that much, in my relationship, with him. That I realize how precious my relationship is with him. So to God, be the glory, as I write.
And I pray, especially, that if anything, these “The Lords Affirmations” will guide you to that place in your own relationship with him, so the desires of your heart can be met. So here are some keys to attaining the desire of your heart.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
What is the Kingdom of God?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
So this tells me you need to make sure, your relationship is in tact with God, that you have accepted Christ as your Lord and savior. And in doing so, you have repented of sin.
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
I Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
So as you are seeking the Kingdom of God, one is seeking the power of God. For an answer. One must according to the scriptures above, be in righteousness, having peace and joy, and praying through the Holy spirit. As in my last teaching, being aware, about the words we speak, and being aware, we are created in Gods image, we can boldly go to the throne of God. (see in my blog, The Lords affirmations, I am created in the image of God.)
Get into the word of God, and renew your mind. The word of God, when we begin understanding him more, is like putting a puzzle together. But as you do, you begin to get a perspective and a knowledge of knowing who God is, and what he expects, and you will grow. Growing in our knowledge of who he is, and honoring him.
Let us do that, as we seek God and his kingdom, for as we do, this will delight the Lord. But don’t pray this unless you believe….
A Prayer of Hope.
Father, I praise you, and Lord, I so want to make sure my relationship is right with you. Father, I repent of any sin. Take away anything that would offend you. I ask for the desire of my heart to be met by you. I do seek your Kingdom, and your righteousness. I ask in faith, and I claim the peace, the joy from your Holy spirit, as I wait on you to answer me. Lord I ask for your power to make that breakthrough. Lord, I love you, and I do delight myself in you. In knowing you, knowing your truth, knowing that you know, what’s best for me. Gives me peace. I do not want to ask amiss, in this desire. But I want your will done in my life. Help me Lord in this, answer me. I believe and affirm, you will give me the desire of my heart, according to all of your word. Lord, I believe. And In Jesus name, I ask this. Amen
