Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
So many people have read today’s verse and say, “It sounds good but it is not true. God hasn’t given me the desires of my heart!” I would suggest the problem isn’t with God’s ability but more to do with our desires. The question we need to ask ourself is, “What are the desires of my heart? What do I really seek after?” You see the real key to today’s verse is in the first part, “Delight in the Lord.” If we are delighting in God, if we are seeking to live for Him, if He is the object of our desire, then what we truly desire in life will be given to us. What we delight in skews our desire. In turn our desires help us increase our delight! And so it goes on. Today, delight in God for He delights in you. When you do, He will give you the desires of your heart.
Dear Father, how I delight in You and Your love for me. How I desire to live for You. How I desire to love the way You do. How I desire to join You in Your work here on earth. Give me, Lord, the desires of my heart.
