The verse, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart,” is known by many (Psalms 37:4). However, the verse before this is often overlooked; and in it is a key phrase for unlocking this promise—“cultivate faithfulness.” Faithfulness isn’t something talked about very much in the American church, but it is a Fruit of the Spirit and should be pursued by every Believer. As we seek out the promises of Psalm 37:4, let’s not forget to cultivate faithfulness. Do the “little things” each day and watch how God makes the desires of your heart and the desires of His heart one and the same. (Hannah Sheets)1
“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’” (Matthew 24:25; NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Ask the Lord to help you become more faithful in your walk with Him—in the big and small things.
- Ask the Lord to make the desires of His heart and the desires of your heart the same thing.
- If you have a big dream, ask the Lord what small steps you can be faithful in today that will lead to the fulfillment of that dream.
- God has a plan for America. Continue to be faithful to pray daily for this nation, until God’s dream is a reality!
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I want faithfulness to be a fruit that is evident in my life. Help me to not overlook the little things or the simple things in my walk with You. Cultivate faithfulness in my life and show me things I can do to be more faithful. Share Your heart for our nation with me, Lord, and prompt me to pray daily until Your dream is a reality! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
I desire to be faithful in my walk with You, Lord!
