God Will Grant Your Desires

Some people hesitate to totally commit themselves to God, to seek God’s Kingdom first. They say, “If I sell out to God, He might send me to Africa, and I don’t want to go.”
That’s not the way it works. James said if a man is a doer of the Word and not a hearer only, he will be blessed in his deeds; he will walk in the perfect law of liberty. (James 1:23,25.)
If you are totally sold out to God, determined to do His will and purpose without reservation to obey, then you will know God’s will.
If you are totally committed to God, He will give you the desires of your heart. (Ps. 37:4,5.) He will put a desire in your heart for the very thing He wants you to do. Then you will be doing exactly what you want to do and be in His perfect will. Psalm 34:10 says, They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. 
Let me give you an example. I had been a farmer for twenty-eight years and I loved it. I had told people, “I’ll never quit farming.” It was the greatest desire of my heart. But when I sold out to God, He began to change my desires.
I didn’t want to be a preacher because I had the wrong idea of preachers. But finally I told my wife, “I don’t know where God is leading, but I’m going.” It was several years before God required me to give up farming’ but gradually, little by little, He changed my desires. 
In 1979 I sold out of the farming business because the greatest desire of my heart was to teach and preach the Word of God. Today I am doing exactly what I want to do and I’m in the perfect will of God, because God has put His desire in my heart.
There are some people who go through life, even in the ministry, being obedient to all they know, but they never find what God wants them to do because they aren’t willing to do it. It seems as though God will not reveal His complete will until you are willing to do it. If you get willing, God will change your desires and you will have joy doing it.
So many go through life miserable; they are obedient, but not willing. They are doing it because they know it is required of them. They never do the perfect will of God because they aren’t willing to really sell out to God. Then you have people who are willing, but somehow they just never get around to doing it. Both of these are miserable throughout life.
You will never find out what God really has in store for you unless you are willing to go wherever He leads you. Once you become willing, He will change your desires.
