Daily Word March 1, 2011 - "The Heart's Desire"

Psalm 20:4-5
"May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans!  May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners!  May the Lord fulfill all your petitions."
A great time of celebration David sees as the Lord is about the business of answering the prayers of His saints.  It is important to remember as we read such passages that the reason God fulfills the plans and grants the desires is because of something much deeper than the petition itself.  James says that the reason we have not is because we "ask amiss".  In other words, we ask not according to the will of God.  God grants our heart's desire and fulfils our plans when our hearts line up with His, and when our plans are His.  This week, as you pray for specific matters, first pray that God will allign you with His will, then pray for the burden of His heart.
