Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
(Psalms 37:4 (NIV))
Have you ever truly stopped to think about this passage?
If you delight in something, it makes you happy. It makes you joyous. It becomes the very thing that you value the most. It becomes your treasure!
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
(Matthew 6:21 (NIV))
If you treasure the Lord, He is where your heart will be. The Lord will be the desires of your heart! He will give you Himself!
I realize that this may sound overly simple, and in all honesty, it is. When the Lord becomes your treasure, when you take delight in Him, He is the true desire of your heart. He willingly gives you what you seek. He gives you a deeper relationship with Himself. He gives you a deeper longing for His heart and for His righteousness. The best part of this process is that He then gives you more of what you desire. He gives you more of Himself!
Do you take delight in the Lord?
