Psalm 37:4 says, “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Some interpret this verse to mean that if you follow God, He will give you everything you want. However, that is only partially true. What actually happens is that when we are seeking after God, He changes our desires to match His.
I am right in the middle of God doing some incredible transformation in my heart. I have barely given up my dream of being a successful entrepreneur, and God has changed my desires and my goals. He has given me a new mission and a new message.
I don’t say “He is doing it” lightly. What He has placed in my heart is so far removed from anything I would have ever wanted to pursue. Now, as I look back, I see that He has been preparing me for this exact ministry. I still don’t know how or when it will happen. But I do know that I just have to be willing and surrender to this process of preparation.
Has God called you to surrender? There is nothing that you could give up that wouldn’t be worth laying aside to pursue what God has for you.
