I remember wanting to begin praying for my future husband - but realizing that before I began praying with a pure heart and believing in faith that God would answer - I needed to know that the desires in my heart were from Him.
How could I honestly pray and ask God for a husband when I wondered if it was just what I wanted or what He wanted for me?
I can remember earnestly seeking Him in prayer about His desires for me and therefore the desires of my heart and I focused on this verse ~
"Delight yourself in the Lord and
He will give you the desires of your heart."
It strikes me that when we are delighting in the Lord, the desires in our hearts are the ones HE places there. Not the things that we in our flesh seek. So, the way that He can promise to give us the desires of our hearts is by knowing that He is really allowing us to desire the same things He wants for us and complete His will in us. His will becomes my will and He delights to fulfill those things.
Are you in a season of waiting? Have you sought to delight yourself in the Lord and let His desires fill your heart? May it be that He would impress upon our hearts, the desires He has for us and may they become our most precious desires as well.
