Tucked away deep within are the desires and longings of my heart and yours. Tucked away and unseen by others yet God sees them as we wait for them to take on a glorious shape of their own and come out of hiding. Sometimes our desires come to fruition in a way that can only mean that God himself etched them on our hearts. So what do you do while you wait on God-dreams and desires? You seek first the kingdom and have faith that the things added to you will come straight from the hand of God in His perfect timing, not yours.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb 11:1 KJV)
It’s the things unseen that I long to watch unfold before me. So I release the things tucked away in my heart and give them over to a God who orders my steps. I know that the waiting is the sweetest gift and beautiful things happen in my heart when I seek His face first and ask Him to rearrange my priorities.
It’s the whispered prayer and the tears you cry wrapped in loneliness. It’s the bended knee in surrender and the hands unclenched releasing hope up to God in prayer as runny mascara makes a path down your face. It’s the hope in things unseen and somehow God gives us little glimpses of the things unseen and joy knowing that the pursuit of seeking His face first will unleash hope in us that will go the distance as we wait. And wait. And then wait some more.
I seek Him first and then whatever He chooses to add is a welcomed addition. A blessing follows when I forfeit my will and agenda to become more. Nothing is greater than seeking God’s face knowing that His will is to bless His children.
Tucked away and sometimes dormant are the desires deep within, they are not forgotten, nor dead. They are simply waiting to take glorious shape into more than you could have ever hoped for. It’s not lost so don’t give up. When God breathes life into something the miraculous happens.
Today I want to seek His face first.
Today I want to love deeper and not expect anything return.
Today I want to pursue peace with wild abandon and trust God with all my heart.
Today I want to let God divinely interrupt my list of things to do and rest in Him.
Today I want nothing more than to please God instead of people.
Today I will seek God first and whatever He wants to add is exactly what I need.
Praying for you today as you wait,
“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him…” (Ps 37:4-7a)
