Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Yesterday I was talking to my grandfather about a desire of my heart. The conclusion we came to- because I am a Christian who is delighting myself in the Lord, I know that the desires I have are FROM THE LORD and I can rest assured that those desires are met in the name of Jesus.
Many times Christians wonder, is it His will for me to be healthy, to be prosperous, to be with this specific person?
Well, look at your relationship with the Lord first. Are you giving Him first place in your life? Are you delighting yourself in Him?
If you answered yes to those questions then Psalms 37:4 tells us that the desires you have are from the Lord. Now you know that what (or who) you desire came from the Lord and you can begin to thank Him knowing that He WILL give you the desires of your heart.
He gave you the desires you have and they are GOOD.
He has an abundant life for you and great fulfillment.
Today, watch as He satisfies you.
Give the Lord first place and He will continue to lead you.
