He will fulfill your heart’s desires,
once you let him
change your heart
If I let my children do that to which their desires lead them, much
of what they would do would be just fine. However, much of what they would do would lead to disaster. If their
desires were the sole criteria for how they live their lives, they would surely have rotten teeth, likely suffer from malnutrition,
almost certainly be injured daily, would have no sense of boundaries, would be unpracticed in the art of empathizing with
others, or might be easily lost or God-forbid easily abducted by some monster.
We are God's children. Many of our desires are just
fine. In fact, they are in a sense an infantile representation of desires given to us by God; desires that, once we
have been refined by God, will be enhanced and satisfied in ways that far exceed what we could achieve on our own. What's
more, they would far exceed any satisfaction we can comprehend outside the Kingdom of Heaven.
The problem is not desire. God loves desire. God is full of desire.
God's desire for us is that we might have Holy Desires, and to have those desires thoroughly satisfied. But this
requires that we attain a New Heart. A New Heart that can only come to us from our Father, our God. Jesus said,
"I have come that you might have life and have it to the full." (John 10:10 NIV).
