God Will Give You the Desires of Your Heart

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.

(Psalm 37:4 NLT)

Driving by the airport one summer, I looked at the planes taking off and longed for a vacation. It had been a hectic year and I needed a break. Unbeknown to me, my family had planned to go away on vacation. It had been a last minute decision, but it seemed just right. God had granted the desire of my heart because it was within His will to grant me peace and rest. What’s the desire of your heart? In today’s psalm, David says that if we delight ourselves in God, He’ll give us the desires of our hearts that are within His will for us. However, for that to happen, we have to take pleasure in God. We’re to be passionate about Him and devoted to Him. Only then will He bless us with good things. If you’re delighting yourself in God, trust that He’ll give you the desires of your heart.

God gives us the desires of our hearts when we learn to delight in Him.
