“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.” (Psalms 37:4)
Good morning beloved. What are your desires today?
Psalms 37:4 says that if you delight in the Lord, He’ll give them to you.
Isn’t that a wonderful promise? We get to delight in the Lord, and because of that, He gives us all that we desire.
Imagine your boss at work telling you to go spend more time and have fun with your loved ones, and because of that, he’ll give you a promotion, a raise, and a big bonus. Wouldn’t that be great?
But how do we actually go about delighting in the Lord?
If we look at the definition of the word ‘delight’, we can see that basically means to ‘experience great pleasure’.
Putting this in context, the psalmist is telling us to rejoice, to be happy, to enjoy the presence of the Lord.
And this comes from knowing who God truly is…
Knowing that He loves you so deeply that nothing can ever come between you and His love.
Knowing that He’s so powerful that nothing can ever stop Him from helping you.
Knowing that He’s already given you every good thing.
Now many of us usually ‘delight’ after we have our desires. It seems to be the ‘natural’ sequence.
But God’s Word is telling us to delight in Him first, and then we’ll have our desires.
So essentially, we do not need to have our desires physically in our hands first in order to rejoice.
God is saying that we should rejoice, be happy, take great pleasure in Him, before we have our desires physically, because He is the source of our desires. He is our strength. He is our joy. He is our provider. He is our healer. He is our protector. He is our redeemer. He is the source of everything good thing that we could ever want or need.
So take pleasure in the Lord today! Rejoice, be happy, and delight in the Lord! And you shall have your heart’s desires.
Be Greatly Blessed!
