Take delight in the LORD,

and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4


This verse could easily be twisted to convey some type of “genie” powers……..

If I do this…….I get that……..


Delight in God and get what you want.

But the longer I walk through life and the more I turn to God in times of need,

the more I realize that the desires of my heart transform the closer and closer I get to Him.

I now see as a temporary longing what once seemed like a need .

My desires these days run deeper than anything this world can hand me…….

even on a silver platter.

I do delight in the Lord.

He is my strength.

He is my hope.

He is my salvation.

And the closer I get to Him the more my desires match His desires.

This frees me up from needing much of anything here on this planet other than His love and faithfulness.

Today, delight in the Lord and ask Him to line your desires up with His.

I’m still learning, but I’m thankful this morning for a God who knows more about what’s best for me than I could ever know on my own.

He truly does promise to give me the desires of my heart,

and I’m so glad He’s teaching me to have the right desires.


Because of this I delight in Him.
