He will give you the desire of your heart

This has been my desire to know and do His will.
A friend of mine reminded me that I should start seeking. Made me realized that I never want to live a life without knowing what God wants to fulfill in my life.

I started with a prayer.

He answered right away what I should do:
Read and study the scripture.

He also once said to me during my quite time =
if you really wanna know God's will because you want to delight Him, and if you're consistently read your Bible, you will find your answer. God has promised that those who seek will find.
Haaah? Can you see how faithful He is in answering our prayer?
Yes, He will answer Yes, No, or Wait.
But, in this case, He answered again right away.
So, the next thing is :
Read and study the scripture consistently.

From the article I read that day, again... He told me this :
To get my attention when I get disctracted, to keep the good things in my life where they belong and to keep Him first, to destroy any idols I have placed ahead of Him.
Hmm.. the idols can be our family, friends, works, money (obviously), entertainment..etc.
Keep focus what we're doing and put it as a priority.

Florence Nightangle, surely you know her, once said:
to live your life, you must discipline it. You must not fritter it away in fair purpose, erring act, inconstant will, but must make your thoughts, your acts, all work to the same end, and that end, not self but God.
I told Him, yes Lord:
I want to do that!!

Last night, before I slept, I read from Psalm 37:7a:
" Be still in the presence of the Lord, wait patiently for Him to act. "
I thought, oh well...that's what I really need now, coz I was waiting for an answer for my other prayer.
But heeey... I barely could not sleep last night.
My air con was broken, so I had to turn it on again so many times. My cellphone couldn't stop ringing (I usually turn it off at night, but I was waiting for someone). My sister and brother came to my room with a lot of noise.
This morning when I awoke, I prayed and laughed, said to Him that it was funny how He reminded me. As I promised Him to be discipline to read the scripture consistently in the really early morning each day, He woke me up that way. (fyi, I sleep like a pig every day, you'll get frustated to wake me, so I used to do my quite time at night).
He really takes care of me. He knows my heart desire and He gives it to me.
I experienced Psalm 37:4 : delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desire of your heart.

I know It's still a long journey to know and do His will, it might take a life time.
But I truly believe He is faithful, as he promised those who seek will find.
I have a confidence on this.
