Delight yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalms 37:4 NASB
Maybe this verse is one of your favorite verses in the bible. Maybe, in times of lifting your request, faithgoals, prayer list, you're reminding God about His promise in this verse. God will give the desires of your heart, if you delight yourself in Him. Opps. Wait a minute. Why does in this verse, Delighting yourself to the Lord came first before His promise that He will give the desires of your heart? Does this mean something? Well. The answer is Yes. Before God gives you what is in your heart, He wants you first to seek him, delight in Him. Prioritize Him. So, does it guarantee that God will exactly give the desires of your heart?
One of God's characters that amaze me is how He answers prayer. (God moves on mysterious way right? Not so mysterious but, surprisingly I guess. ) The reason, why He wants you to delight yourself in Him, is because, He wants you know His desires for you. That is how great He is!! He wants you to delight yourself in Him, so His heart, and His desires, will be in line with yours. Amazing right?
Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will reveal His perfect will for you.
