Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4 ESV)
I have to admit that I have often interpreted “the desires of your heart” to be worldly desires. Things like health, happiness, a comfortable home, a pain and troubled free life, or plenty of money. Things that I think will make me happy.
However, I now have new and better insight on this. It is now obvious to me. If I delight myself in God he will give me himself! And what could be better?
You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalms 16:11 ESV)
In the presence of God there is life, fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore. What more could I want? And more importantly why don’t I delight myself in God and desire Him above all things in Heaven and Earth?
