Wondering if you’ll ever see your heart’s desires come to pass? Don’t give up! Use these steps and move closer to everything you’ve dreamed of.
What are the desires of your heart? Your heart’s desires equal everything you secretly dream about, visualize, or imagine. They are not just far-off, impractical wishes or impossible hopes, but they are deeply spiritual in nature.
Maybe you desire to write a book, lose weight or perhaps you’ve always desired to start a ministry or a business. Or what about financial freedom? Whatever the desires of your heart, it is never too late to receive them. No matter how old you are or how long you have been waiting—you can have the desires of your heart.
Before you ever begin pursuing your heart’s desires, you must know they line up with God’s Word and will. The more time you spend with God—seeking Him and obeying His Word—the more certain you will be that your heart’s desires match His will. In fact, God puts those desires in your heart (Psalm 37:4). They become in sync with His will.
Once you are convinced you are in line with God’s will and Word, follow these steps to receive the desires of your heart.
1. Catch a Vision- Create your Vision Board 2.0
Create your Vision Board 2.0. Why a vision board? Now before you roll your eyes, hear me out on this. Vision boards work and the reason why is quite simple. A vision board is a place that displays what you want in life. (Your desires) When you hang it in a space where you see it daily, your vision board brings your goals and aspirations to life when activated alongside with prayer. Yes prayer, therefore, your vision board will not be like the traditional vision board. . See full article on Vision Board 2.0
There are two kinds of people—those who can see their desires coming to pass and those who can’t (or won’t). Only one group will be in the victor’s circle. Don’t let naysayers talk you out of what belongs to you. Catch a vision!
2. Persevere In Faith
After your thoughts and words are in line with God’s Word, what do you do next? You wait. How much do you like waiting to receive the desires of your heart? Waiting probably is not high on your list. Patience is not as fun as conquering by faith, is it? But perseverance is required to get to the finish line. That is why Hebrews 10:36 says, “You have need of patience” (NMB) because persevering in faith is what brings you to the finish line—where your heart’s desires are waiting for you.
However, waiting is not passive, it is highly active! While you are waiting, you are persevering in your faith, which means you are not letting anything, or anyone talk you out of what you are believing for. Persevere in faith, do not waver from your position, remain obedient, continually grow and above all—Do not Give Up.
3. Develop a Heart of Gratitude
A heart of gratitude is full of praise and thanksgiving—and holds amazing power. Your heart’s desires are contingent upon developing a heart of gratitude. It will release you from bondage and unleash the power of abundance in your life. God is worthy of all our praise. As you praise God for who He is and the victory He has secured for you, He will make a way to bring the desires of your heart to pass.
Now that you know the steps to receiving the desires of your heart, start putting them into practice today. Take the time to get a vision, have faith and have a heart of gratitude.
