When [Moses] was well-nigh forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel. Acts 7.23.

In the Scriptures is to be found one particularly precious fact— that God treasures especially a heart which inclines towards Him. The story of Moses beautifully illustrates to us how a man had a heart desire to save the children of Israel for God’s sake. Although he was not used by the Lord until he was eighty years old, Moses’ heart desire began at forty, not later at eighty. After forty long years had elapsed, God still had not forgotten the desire of this man’s heart.

This was also true of Samuel. Hannah his mother prayed to the Lord saying: “If thou wilt indeed . . . give thy handmaid a man-child, then I will give him unto Jehovah all the days of his life” (1 Sam. 1.11). Because Samuel’s mother had this desire of her heart towards God, Samuel was afterwards called and used by the Lord to accomplish His plan for that particular dispensation. Whenever the Lord sees a heart desire towards Him, He treasures it.
