Phil 2: 12-13
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
I was reading this the other day and it really spoke to me. I do believe that God is a dreamgiver and that He gives us dreams and desires. He put desires in our heart to lead us the way, to His plan for our lives.
John 15 tell us that if we abide ( live with God and become like Him) in Christ, if we continue our relationship with the Lord and dwell with Him over a period of time, His word will abide in us. If we ask Him what we desire He will give it to us. Matthew 7:7 says "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."
So now you probably ask which desires are from God and which ones are your own. If you're not sure, pray about it. That's what I do. Sometimes I have very strong desires and I pray for those desires. It's up to God what He wants to do with it. But remember no matter how much we may desire something if we don't have peace deep in our hearts about it, then it's not right for us.
