My husband has been clearing a property that we may build on; I say “may” because nothing is ever sure in this world but Jesus’s return; however, we must continue to live while we wait. I’ve been looking for a sign that this property is the right one and yesterday, I saw it. It’s something so simple, but it’s a tell-tell sign from God that we’ve chosen the right location. I say this because he always meets my request, maybe not immediately, but eventually; that’s why you must remember the things you petition for in prayer. You don’t even need to state your request out loud in the form of a prayer; sometimes, he answers your desires, like my mental checklist. God is probably the one who gave me the list; remember, he gives us the desires of our heart, meaning he’s put those desires in place to get credit for fulfilling them. The sign he gave me was a fruit tree, not a tree that I plant because I could do that on any property, but one already there. I can’t tell you the joy that came over me when I saw it. This parcel of land has everything I love. Now we wait to see if everything falls into place.
Stay sharp, pay attention to your desires, and give God thanks when he fulfills them.
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15
