Placing what we want in front of the need will hinder our growth in the Father. It blocks His will for our lives. The Father said He will supply all of our need according to His riches in glory (Phil. 4:19). We tend to want what we see and what our flesh yearns.
We don't think like the Father because our ways are not His ways and our thoughts are not His thoughts (Isa. 55:8-9). What we want is often not good for us. What we need is always connected to our walk In glorifying the Father. He promised to give us the desires of our hearts, but what are the desires of our hearts?
Whatever the Father's will is for our lives, this should be our desire. We must align with His will. Yeshua's prayer in Gethsemane was "Not my will, but your will be done." Who would want that cup? He asked if the cup could pass by me? (see Matt. 26:36-46).
Yet, the Father has predestined the cup for Yeshua. He was created for the cup. When the time had come for Yeshua to receive what He needed from the Father, He had come to realize it wasn't about what He wanted, it was time to receive what He needed.
Are you in a time of need and you think what you want will be fulfilling? Talk to the Father so He can give you a supply of strength and peace. A big helping of boldness, wisdom and knowledge. Maturity isn't easy, but it is fulfilling.
You were designed with purpose. You were created for destiny. The Father redeemed you to have eternal life. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Heb. 11:1). The more your desires become more like the Father's, the more you faith will move mountains on your behalf. His promises are the substance, and His will is the evidence we need in our walk with Him.
