Delighting Ourselves in the Lord


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

Psalm 37:4

Most of us understand, that people of faith can have joy. But what does it mean, that he will give us the desires of our heart? Does it mean that he will give us whatever we want? If you think about it though, that doesn’t sound quite right.

Think about it this way, if we delight in the Lord, that delight – will place on our hearts the desires that we should have, or that God wants us to have.

Another way of saying this is: that joy connects us so beautifully with the Lord, that we open our hearts to receive His desires for us.

Wow! Ain’t that cool?
