Do you know the secret to fulfilling all of your heart’s desires?
Not only is it simple, it’s easy. Not only is it easy, it’s joyous!
The Bible says if you “take delight in the Lord, He will give you your heart’s desires” (Psalm 37:4 NLT).
I don’t know about you, but I plan on delighting in the Lord all I can! I plan on praising and thanking Him and acknowledging Him in all of my ways. I look for opportunities to sit in His presence and converse with Him, rest in Him, press into His wise counsel, and lean on Him when things get rough.
Allowing our Heavenly Father to bring us delight is what delights Him most. It is a demonstration of our trusting in Him.
It is how we stir up our faith. And you know “it is impossible to please God without faith!” (Hebrews 11:6)
There is no other way to please God than delighting in Him.
It is the path to not only fulfilling our hearts desires, but of sanctifying those desires themselves. God will not just give us what we want; He will make us desire what He wants so that following Him is that much more joyful and fulfilling.
So simple. So true. So profound.
Look for ways to delight yourself in the Lord, and the Lord will look for ways to delight your heart! It’s that simple.
Psalm 37:4–5 AMP: Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
