Delight in the LORD

Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you your heart’s desires. (Psalms 37:4 NLT)

Have you ever thought what you would do if you won the lottery?  Pay off bills, buy a new car, house, help others?  Many people have thought that this verse means you will receive whatever you want.  I think there may be a different meaning in this verse.  When you take delight in the LORD, you spend time with Him.  His thoughts become your thoughts.  You become more like Him.  Your desires will line up with the desires He has for you.  You will want what He wants.  He will give you those desires.  Desires to know Him more fully.  A desire to reach others for Him.

LORD, we love you and want to have a closer relationship with You.  We want what you want for us.  We want our desires to line up with Your desires.  Thank you for putting Your desires in our hearts.  In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
