Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4 NKJV)
What are the desires of your heart? Health, happiness, wealth? In today’s verse, we are told that when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He gives us the desires of our heart.
When we love someone, our desire is to make them happy, to make them feel special and loved. When they feel loved, we feel loved.
In our relationship with the Lord, the desires of our hearts should be to please Him in all things. Through pleasing and delighting in Him, He gives us the desires of our hearts.
“The person who delights in God will strive and endeavour in all things to please and give satisfaction to God. If we delight in any person, certainly we will attempt to please Him in all things. We can test whether we delight in God; our main design and endeavour will be to please Him in all things.” - Andrew Gray
