The Desires of your Heart

Also delight yourself in Yahweh, And he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4 WEB

Many years ago I bought a graphics card for my computer with the newly released digital visual interface port. DVI had just come out, and it would allow you to connect a computer to a high definition television so you could use it like a giant monitor. Being intrigued by electronics and gadgets, and the thought of computer gaming on a big screen television, I really wanted to try this.

To make it work, I needed a DVI to HDMI converter cable. At the time, this was cutting edge and I had never actually seen a cable like this, but I knew they existed. One morning before I set out to work, I was searching for the cable on the Internet. I found one for $40 plus shipping, but I decided not to buy it yet. It was not really a need, just something that I wanted to play with.

Our first client of the day was an insurance company. We arrived and while talking with the manager about what needed to be done, he reached into his desk drawer and tossed a cable on the desk, new, unopened and still in the plastic package. Then he said:

'I bought this a while back, and I don't even know what it is, or why I bought it, but maybe you can use it.'

It was a brand new DVI to HDMI converter cable in an unopened package. He had bought it for me and did not even know it. I just laughed and thought that God is better to me than I am to myself. I am so thankful for the little things that He does in our life. Seek the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added to you (Luke 12:31).

Many times in my life I have been happily serving the Lord and suddenly something wonderful happened that I had not prayed about, or even mentioned to anyone. Things that were too trivial to pray about, came to pass. I encourage you today: Get lost in the Lord's goodness. He is so Awesome in every way, and He will take care of you. If it matters to you, it matters to Him.

Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You and I want to experience more of You in my life, outside of the church walls. I want to see You working in my life every day. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
