Have you ever wanted something so bad until it seemed to hurt? You did everything in your power to bring light to your situation but no matter how or what you tried, nothing happened. Then you decided to pray about the matter. After praying and crying, and crying and praying God still seemed to have turned a deaf ear to your request.
Then you say what comes natural for us, "Lord, it must not be meant for me!", or "If it was supposed to be, Lord you would have honored my prayer." And God is sitting right at the rim waiting to see if you are going to give up or hold to His promise. In all of this you have to understand that desire does not just float into your atmosphere. The seeds of desire are planted into your energy some righteous and some unrighteous. Your job is to disregard the unrighteous seeds by simply: Resisting the devil and knowing at that moment he will flee from you. Then take the righteous seeds, plant them, and nourish them.
Are you saying to me that desires can come from God? Did not the word say, "I will give you the desires of your heart?" Do you think God is going to give you something that does not align with His plan for your life and His purpose? So yes, the seeds of righteous desires are planted in your atmosphere and energy by a righteous God.
Hannah thought that her desire to have a baby was all about her. Little did she know, God would take the very child He would bless her with and make him the last of the judges and the first of the Major Prophets. He would prophesy to the same priest who blessed his mother, Eli. This same son would appoint two of Israel's most prominent kings: Saul and David.
It was Hannah's desire but God's purpose. So the moral of this story is that God can use your desires to usher you into His purpose! Remember this and hang on to the desires of your heart believing that God can make them happen. Be Blessed!
