The Desires of Your Heart

Psalm 37:4  

Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the LORD... (graphic by Erica Bennett)If we trust in God and “feed on His faithfulness,” we won’t have to be envious of the fleeting pleasures that evildoers seem to enjoy (Psalm 37:1-3). When God is our delight, He will delight in us and take pleasure in giving us the pure and right desires of our hearts.

Some of these desires are fulfilled immediately, while some will not come until the Kingdom of God—the wonderful solution to this world’s troubles that His people greatly desire—is established here on earth.
