Day 2 Giving God Possession of Our Dreams/Desires
Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
Our desires come from our hearts. As long as our hearts are still deceitful (Jeremiah 17:9) our desires and dreams are of the same nature. Now that we have given God possession of our hearts we must also give Him ownership of our desires, our hopes and our dreams. Our new heart must not be filled with old desires or they will return to their old nature.
Today we fast and pray for the release of our old desires and dreams. We purpose to delight ourselves in the Lord and trust that He will give us the desires of our hearts, our new hearts; hearts filled with and owned by Christ. We declare Isaiah 58:14 over our lives: “Then you shall delight yourself in the Lord; and I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
