“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart,” (Psalm 37:4).
All of God’s promises are yes and amen in Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20). This means any promise in the Bible God has made to His children you can have through faith in Jesus. Psalm 37:4 is one of my favorite promises in the Bible. God said He would give us the desires of our heart. Do you know your desires? What are you believing God for? There is absolutely nothing impossible for God and with God.
We do have a part to play in receiving God’s best in life. The first part of Psalm 37:4 states we must first delight ourselves in Jesus. King David knew what it was like to find delight in the Lord. He encourages all of us in Psalm 34:8 to taste of God for He surely is good!
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him,” (Psalm 34:8).
Finding your delight in Jesus means you give Him your heart. It means to place your faith in Him and trust Him to take good care of you. Finding your delight in the Lord means to place Him first in your life. It means you placing Jesus at the center of your life and fitting everyone and everything else around Him. When a person does this, they will discover that God really is good and He really does love them.
When a person finds their delight in Jesus they become one with Him. His desires become their desires. You don’t have to be concerned with having wrong or selfish desires. You don’t have to be afraid of asking God for the things that are in your heart that supersede your needs. God placed His desires in your heart because He wants to give those things to you, but you must have the courage to ask of Him (Matthew 7:7).
God is a loving father. His heart is full when your life is full. He is Love and Love always gives. Delight yourself in Jesus every day and receive the desires of your heart!
