“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart

“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4
Rather than seeing this as a way to get our wish list granted, let’s see it for what it really is — an invitation to seek a love relationship with God above all other things. In finding him, we will find our priorities properly aligned and our hearts tuned to know what is really valuable and what is not. Then we will see that what we have in him is our heart’s greatest desire.

Prayer:

Awesome and Gracious Father, I confess to you that so often my heart is full of selfish things. But in moments like these, Father, I recognize that you are what I most need and your will is my heart’s desire. Please kindle your Spirit in me so that I may see through any selfish, deception that would rob me of having you first in my life. Forgive me when I’m petty, selfish and shallow. May I know you as much as is possible for a mortal to know you, not so that I may be full, but that you may be honored. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.

  1. I love that verse it tells me to find Joy in the Lord and when we do that He will give us those things in which we desire. But I also know that often times we think we desire something when in reality we don’t really desire it anyway. That is why God always looks at man’s heart.
