There are certain promises in the Bible that are conditional, and this is one of them.
Do what the Lord asks of you, and He will give you your heart’s desire.
Now you may say, I’ve tried to live for God, but I still haven’t gotten what I wanted.
My question to you is, have you truly surrendered your desires to God? Have you asked according to His will for your life?
If my daughter’s wish would come true, she would have access to a whole bunch of sweets, but I know that giving into that particular desire won’t do her any good. It is not something that she needs.
To do what the Lord wants is to sacrifice self. “Not what I want Lord, but what You desire for me,” should be our prayer.
So look inward…reevaluate your relationship with the Lord. See whether you are living a surrendered life and if you’re not, submit.
In time you will see that God will give you all that you need.
