For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
(Eph. 2:10 AMP)
God has prearranged a good life for you to live. People get upset when they hear of preachers or other believers in the congregation prospering. But that's your heritage as a child of God.

If you're faithful to God, He'll be faithful to you. God doesn't care what kind of home or how many homes you have. He wants you to have a good one. He wants you to have the one you desire. He doesn't care. People care.

God Wants to Lavish You
According to Ephesians 1:7-9, God not only wants you having the desires of your heart, but He also wants to lavish you with blessings.
In Him we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses), in accordance with the riches and the generosity of His gracious favor,

Which He lavished upon us in every kind of wisdom and understanding (practical insight and prudence),

Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him.
(Eph. 1:7-9 AMP)
The word lavish means to bestow with profusion, produced in abundance, extravagant, very abundant, more than what is needed, and to pour out as of wastefully.

God wants to produce abundance in your life. He wants to be extravagant with you. He wants to make more than what is needed. There is no limit with God.

God Responds to Your Intensity
Since I tapped into this revelation of intensity of desire, I don't even have to voice my needs or desires many times. I can just think it, and it happens. God is so good.

Not too long ago, I desired a certain brand of clothing that was very expensive. That was the desire of my heart.

One day, Jerry said, "Carolyn, I want to buy you one of those suits for your birthday."

I said, "Thank you! I receive that."

So I went down, and I picked one out for my birthday. Then, the next week I ministered at a church, and the gift they gave me was one of those suits. The exact brand I had desired. So I had two of them.

When you get a taste of a good thing in your mouth, you want it again, don't you? If Grandma makes that coconut cream pie one Sunday, then you begin to expect it every Sunday.

Shortly after, Jerry and I went to another meeting, and when we entered the guest house where we were scheduled to stay, there were garments all over the bed. There were shoes, earrings, everything all over the room.

I said to the gentleman who drove us there, "Sir, I think the pastors would be embarrassed, because I don't think housekeeping came to clean the guest house."

He said, "No, Ma'am. You need to read the card."

I read the card, and it was from the Pastor's wife saying that God had spoken to her saying, "I want you to bless Carolyn Savelle for her years of faithfulness to the Lord and to her husband and children."

There were twelve of those very suits I had desired! Not only that, but they also provided matching shoes and earrings for each outfit!! Does God give us the desires of our heart? Yes, He does. When? When you become intense on getting it.

The next meeting I went on, the Pastor's wife said to me, "Carolyn, I notice the brand of clothing you're wearing. Do you like them?"

I said, "I love them. I've been believing God for them for so long."

She said, "Carolyn, could I give you mine? I don't wear them anymore."

She gave me 22 of those suits! God gave it to me. Why did He give it to me? It was the (earnest, strained, unremitting, engrossed, absorbed, fixed, focused, attentive, deliberate and willful) intensity of the desire on the inside of me. I wanted it, and God blessed me.

Satan tried to distract me, and he will try to distract you to lose your focus from this revelation on intensity of desire and God's plan to lavish us abundantly. God just revealed to me His heart.

And if I can think it and want to do it for my grandchildren in the natural, how much more does the Heavenly Father want to do this for us because we're His children?

If God wants to do that for us, then we are the ones who limit Him and stop Him from doing it in our lives. God does not want us to put limitations on His being able to provide for us. It all depends upon us and our intensity of desire.

How badly do you want that thing? If you want it badly enough, then God will manifest it in your life.
