Before I had a real relationship with God, I didn’t understand why my friend would sit in her room for hours reading her bible. She would have notebooks everywhere and I would always wonder, what is she writing in all these notebooks? All this highlighting. God is so funny, I would be JEALOUS of her relationship. I was MAD that I didn’t understand and my Apostle always says, you’re not going to do anything until you get mad. I got so “MAD” that I had the thought that I would just go buy myself a bible too. It was like reverse psychology lol but that’s not what this blog post is about, this blog post is about a conversation we had about a scripture I read after getting said bible.
That one conversation we had taught me so many things and the Holy Sprit just brought it back to me so I know its on time for somebody including me. It was this particular scripture that I had read but of course I didn’t have the revelation on it. We were talking about something and I confidently said, “Well didn’t God say that He would give you the desires of your heart?” She quickly shut that down and I was so confused. Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. That’s what it said! It wasn’t until I started my own relationship with God that I realized it was about alignment.
Such a simple concept but it is the most important posture that you can have with God. The personal revelation that I got when I really thought about it was that when you align yourself with God, your desires become His desires. He’s able to pour out more because He can trust you. He can trust your intentions. He can trust that when He speaks, you’ll listen. God can use anything to bless His people. It may be the very thing that your heart desires that He needs to use to show somebody that God can do it…….are you willing to let go knowing that God is able to do something bigger for your obedience?
Our whole relationship with God is contingent on a full blown heart surgery. There are so many scriptures concerning the heart of man.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23
“for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21
“Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: But the LORD pondereth the hearts.” Proverbs 21:2
The list can go on and on but the one major theme is that God values where your heart is when it comes to things concerning Him. What is your Heart Posture? Are you aligned with God? Does your fruit show that? Are the desires you have in the right season of your life? Alignment with God saves so many emotions. I’m not going to sit here and lie and say I’m fully aligned but the more that I become aligned with Him, the more my ‘nos’ excite me. “God, this is what I THINK I want and You mean to tell me that You have BIGGER and BETTER waiting?!” Whew. Get aligned with what God wants so you can walk into the abundance He promised us since the foundation of the world!
