Make A Wish

Like the engine of a car, desire is what gives us the energy and motivation to keep moving forward in life. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning!

Desire is defined as ‘a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen’.

Although we may not always get exactly what we wish for, in Proverbs 11:23 God promises us that ‘the desire of the righteous [will] end only in good’ – Proverbs 11:23 (NIV)

There are two keys to remember with this promise.

1. Firstly, there is a process. The promise is that our desires will end in good – not that they are immediately fulfilled. There is always a process or a gap time between the desire and the delivery – so don’t give up and keep persevering – the end is on its way!

2. Secondly, the promise is that your desires will end in good, not that you will get exactly what you wish for. According to Strongs, the word, ‘good’ in Hebrew means, ‘beautiful, best and better’, so although you may not get exactly what you wished for, God will take your desires and give you something even better than you could have dreamed of!

Never disregard or downplay the desires in your heart, but as you entrust them to God, they will end only in good!
