Desires! We all have them. You know, those things we strongly wish for. Those things we set our hearts on, yearn for and long for, those things we want to come forth and come to past in our lives. Either starting a new business, learning new things, getting married, changing the world, living holy above sin, overcoming temptations, getting through one life challenge or the other, or winning life’s battles. You will always have heart desires and whatever your desires are, you have got to learn to speak them forth with the word of God.
The word of God is the word of truth. It renews mind and transforms lives. It teaches, informs and instructs you on what to do. When you speak God’s word over your desires, you in effect align your thoughts, your will and your desires with God’s plans for your life. You in effect surrender yourself under the leadership of the Almighty God. When you speak His word out loud and you confess positive over your desires repeatedly, the word finds its place in your heart, it work its way into your mind until it is deeply rooted, it transforms you gradually and it comes alive for you.
For as long as your desires are good and not for evil, they are from the God of love who gives good and perfect gifts (James 1:17) to his children and this God has not given his children the spirit of timidity that hides godly desires. Instead God has given you power, might, the spirit of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). In order to live the abundant life Christ promised his brothers and sisters (John 10:10), you need to dig deep into God’s word, accept the truth it offers and allow it to do its work in you and over you. When you do these things, your desires will be perfectly aligned with God’s will for your life and you must fan into flames the gifts, the skills you need for your desires to come alive and glorify God.
It is not good enough that you have desires that are stored away in your heart. Hiding your desires in your heart without doing anything about it is wishful thinking. God is ready to work and walk with you in fulfilling your heart desires and the best thing to do for yourself is to partner with God in bringing forth these desires.
So are you ready to bring alive your desires? Then start to speak the word of God over your desires and see them manifest in your life.
Speak Forth the Word and Change Your World
