God Will Grant The Desire Of Your Heart

Today's Scripture Passage is from:

Mark 11:12-33 KJV
(12)  And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
(13)  And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
(14)  And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
(15)  And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
(16)  And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
(17)  And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
(18)  And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
(19)  And when even was come, he went out of the city.
(20)  And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
(21)  And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
(22)  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
(23)  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
(24)  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
(25)  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
(26)  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
(27)  And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
(28)  And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
(29)  And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
(30)  The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.
(31)  And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
(32)  But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
(33)  And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.

Do you believe that God will is to grant the desires of your heart? After over 40 years of believing in God I know He grants the deepest desire of the heart. The desire of the heart are often not seen to the human eye, in the scope of having a completion in life to be able to obtain the good things of this world. There is always time of hardship, and just plain bad times that seem not to be our desire, yet it a part of life. Each path we follow in life as long as we are following Christ will take us to the deepest desires of our heart.

Jesus chooses to explain the deepest desire of our heart by the death of a fig tree, he declared he would no longer bear fruit. See whatever we ask of our Heavenly Father He desires to make it happen. He desires to move the mountain in our life, the mountain of sin. If we can believe God grants the desires of our heart and we witness this, we also understand His ability and power to forgive our sin. Jacob told the Lord if he would bring him back to land of promise He would worship Him. For fourteen years Jacob was in a foreign land. Gaining two wives, sons, livestock and more. God calls him to return to his homeland. Jacob desire was to live in the promise land of his fathers. This story is found in Genesis. Fourteen years is a long time to be away from home, but the desire was to go home. He was not even very far away from home when God showed him the ladder to heaven. Yet he desire something more then heaven at the time was his family. Sin will take you further then you want to go. Jacob lied to his father to steal the birthright he had already bought from his brother Esau. His father not knowing what Esau did. Esau was his father's favorite and he was going to be bless by his father, and Jacob betrayed his father by pretending to be his brother by disguise. His father was blind and old. He would not know the difference. Jacob deception would cause his father desire to kill him, so he would have to leave. His mother told him to go to her people. God would call Jacob back to the land of promise, the land of his people fourteen years later.

The power of God to grant our desires is not always given at the time we ask for it. God has a timetable to meet the needs and desires of your heart. Sometimes, he takes us through the valley before getting the mountain top. And other times we walk the edge of the mountain only to once again go to the valley in our life for a reason. The journey is long, but the gift of God is plentiful. Nothing will happen that is not common to man. Yet with faith God through Christ Jesus heals our diseases, heals our soul, mind and spirit. Repairs the damage of life road. The greatest miracle is the forgiveness of the heart and the ability to forgive others.

The Pharisees got angry because they did not understand the power in which Jesus had. They did not understand the power given to Him was from heaven, because He was the Word of God and the Son of God in the flesh. Jesus asked about John the baptist and his authority, of whether John authority was from heaven or not. The Pharisees were scared to answer him, because despite what they said it would effect the crowd. The Pharisees desired the people not to follow Jesus, but many followed anyway. Jesus refusted to tell the authority given him to make the fig tree dry up and the mountains to move in people's life, for they would not believe.

Our biggest failing is not believing the word of God. Our biggest failing is not thinking it is possible to receive the gift of God. Our greatest worry is perhaps God not forgiving us of some sin we did, but I can tell you this Jesus paid the price for all our sin. He came to redeem the world if they only would believe. It takes faith to believe in God's redemption plan for mankind. Do you have faith today? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved and confess your sins and He is able to forgive you of your sins.

When this passage begins it also talks about Jesus turning over the money changers and casting out those who desired to make his house a den of thieves, for God's house by all nations should be a house of prayer. This anger the pharisees because they were profiting off those who sold in God's house. The fig tree was only a sign of how the sin of the Pharisees was fixing to dry up. They would no longer produce fruit. In fact the would plot on how to destroy Jesus. As we lead up to the crucifixion of Jesus, let us hold to knowledge that God had a plan to save his people from their sins.
