Thursday August 28th, 2014: Psalm 37:4

Devotions

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

Psalm 37:4 NIV

Delight simply means to greatly please. So when you delight in the Lord is means you are pleasing Him or honoring Him. When you please Him He will give you the desires of your heart. This doesn’t mean He will give you that new pair of shoes you’ve been “desiring,” but rather the TRUE desires of your heart. When your heart’s desires match up with The Word He will give you the desires of your heart.

A few years ago I didn’t feel like I had a lot of Godly friendships. It was a really difficult time of my life. I had a few friends but I desired to have close Godly friendships. I prayed and prayed. One day I realized that God had given me the desires of my heart and I didn’t even realize it. He placed some of my closest friends in my life and I still can’t believe I’ve been blessed with such great friendships.

 Maybe you desire to hear from God. Maybe you desire to have a closer relationship with Him. Maybe you desire Godly friendships. Whatever you desire, God wants to bless you. He wants to give you the desires of your heart.

Find pleasure  in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart! Happy Thursday!
