God Is At Your Door

When you have a strong desire for change, God is at your door.

God said, “before you call I’ll be there, before you ask”…

David had an excellent reputation of seeking God’s Presence.

LoveWorld USA Blog - Prayer New TestamentWhen you discover that you have a strong desire for change, then God is at your door. The strong desire is the response of the human soul to God, as He knocks on the door of your heart. There’s something about the human soul; when your soul cries out in a strong desire, God immediately responds to it.

God said:

before you call I’ll be there, before you ask, I’ll answer you (Isaiah 65:24).

What do you do with your desire?

Let’s learn from David. David had an excellent reputation of seeking God’s Presence. God called him a man after His own heart (1 Samuel 13:14).

“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.” (Psalms 63:1-2)

David said, ‘I have a strong desire within me to see your power, Oh God!’ He didn’t hunger and thirst for food and drink; he thirsted and hungered to see the power of God.

If you don’t follow his writing carefully, you may erroneously think he just woke up one morning with this desire without doing anything, that is, without any effort on his own part. The secret of this longing and desire for God is in verse 6 of the same chapter, where he says:

“When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.” (Psalm 63:6.

Can you see that? Even when he went to bed, he didn’t forget about God. He thought about Him all day and night, meditating on His Word. This wasn’t an accidental thought. No! It was a conscious thought and must have required some effort on his part.

He deliberately and consciously nursed his desire for God! You can either nurse to increase your desire, or quench your desire. When that strong desire comes to your heart, nurse it, nourish it, and don’t let anything take it away from you. Let it grow stronger and stronger.

You’ll also discover that when you have a strong desire for something, more information will come to you about that thing. Then you’ll look up to God for answers. If you have a strong desire, let it work in you, don’t push it away.

    Dear loveworld,

    God has been doing wonderful things in my life. Everything you have written so far here has been confirmed in my life.

    At my church in Jamaica, we have been studying the topic of God’s love. We have found scriptures which explicitly define the love of God. I’ve got the Greek/Hebrew word meanings for love, scripture references and interpretations… Everything I know that would send theologians in fits of cognitive estacy.

    I have been studying the word of God so much that I begin to dream about it. The thoughts about how I can show off the love of God consumes my mind, till I begin to do things which I later realise happen to agree with scripture.

    I want to use this opportunity to encourage anyone reading this article that God does act on your desire to please him. Psalm 37:4,5 says “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”.

    Just want to share a testimony on how Ps 37:4,5 literally took effect in my life.

    Like David, I’ve got a passion for “zamar” praise. (It’s worship done with musical instruments). I love to play guitar and I decided about six months ago to use my talent to serve in my church. As I’m not classically trained (never studied fancy musical theory), I turned to YouTube and the Internet for free lessons. I only did it because I thought it would improve the quality of what I can contribute to the worship experience. So yesterday(Nov 6), I was on my way to church with my guitar when I remembered that strings were needed for the church’s guitar. So I went ahead into a route taxi that was waiting at a taxi stand (similar to a bus stop).
    In Jamaica, route taxis don’t move until
    they get a full load. Since I was the only person, I asked the driver if it was okay to leave my guitar in the front passenger seat so that I could run to a music store less than 100m away to purchase strings. He asked me where I was going so I told him, “I am going to.. [my church]”. While at the store, the PoS machine was taking an unsually long time to process the transaction. So I left the store to return to the taxi stand to ask the driver to wait for me – and the taxi driver was gone. Naturally I was upset. I berated myself for being so irresponsible. I didn’t know the taxi driver and every car in the taxi stand was a similar make or model. I didn’t take the licence plate number so I couldn’t make a police report. I returned to the store, collected the strings and called my mother and my church to let them know that I lost my guitar. I waited in the stand for an hour, hoping that the taxi would return. Then I received a call from a recruiter at 1215hrs to inform me that ‘it was imperative that I attend an impromptu job interview’. I was unprepared, inappropriately attired for a job interview and bemoaning the loss of my guitar (which had significant sentimental value to me). As I slowly walked to the location of the interview, I was reminded of the scripture “These things I have told you that you may have peace: though you face tribulation, be of good cheer for I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 NKJV). And suddenly, I was filled with unexplained peace and joy. When I arrived, the receptionist said I had to leave a message for the interviewer as he’d gone out of office. As I waited, I received a call from my church at 1300h to say that they had received a gig bag with a guitar for me. The taxi driver had been waiting outside the church until it was opened! Overjoyed, I left the office and took a taxi to church to collect my instrument. I also put new strings on the church’s guitar. At 1322h the interviewer called to say he received my message after he returned to office and asked me if I was still able to attend the interview. I told him that I was at church. So he says he had actually left to speak with the recruiter about the interview and lunch was prepared for me. So I left church with my guitar en route to the interview. At 1400h, I walked into the lobby and was taken to the conference room where I saw groups of persons sitting at tables with papers. Without an interview, I went through a quick training exercise and was put to work. At the end, I was asked to sign the register, assigned a code signature and told to return for work tomorrow.

    I got a job (no interview, no sweat), my guitar returned and the gift of peace and joy- just because God created an opportunity to prove his Word to me.

    Thanks for the time you took to read this long comment. I hope that it encourages you as you preserve in your relationship with Christ.
