Are you waiting for something God has promised you? For sure, many of God’s promises can come to pass without your input – or even your cooperation. But why would you want to just sit around and do nothing? You could be learning to partner with the Holy Spirit in your own development … and make every day count!
The Lord has shown me the Desires He placed in my heart. I used to ask Him – almost daily – to remove those Desires because I had been unsuccessful in bringing them about on my own. But He promised to give them to me Himself. That’s pretty exciting!
But when, Lord? I’m not getting any younger, you know. And please don’t remind me of those Biblical late-bloomers like Abraham, Sarah, Moses, or Caleb. I want to step into my inheritance and fulfill the purpose for which You created me. Today.
Can I speed up fulfillment of God’s Promises?
At the very least, isn’t there something I can be doing while I wait?
I want today to be Significant.
I want to partner with The Lord. To submit to Him. To become the person He wants me to be. So I can fully receive and fully enjoy the Times He has planned for me. That He has conceived in His Heart for me since before the foundations of the earth (Ephesians 2:10).
Wait! The Answer is within the Promise!
Take delight in The Lord,
and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Take delight in The Lord? So that’s my job? I love it! Don’t know what that means to you all. But here’s what it means to me to delight in The Lord:
- Worship Him. First thing. Everyday. There is Joy in His Presence.
- Find Joy in the sometimes-painful process of being made more like Jesus.
- Spread Joy. Love unconditionally. Lavishly. Without expecting anything in return.
Yes! God’s Promises do make every day count!

Remember to seek the Holy Spirit and examine the Scriptures.
… they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. (Acts 17:11b)
