The Desires of Your Heart

by | Jul 26, 2013

Psalm 37:4  “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”

What a great verse!  Now before anyone thinks I am driving down prosperity thinking highway I will get straight to the point here: essentially what this verse is saying is that if you learn to delight yourself in the Lord instead of yourself then you will have His desires and He will give you the desires of your heart because they line up with His will for your life!

The key to knowing God’s will for your life is to pour yourself into Him.  Set yourself aside for now and forget about what you want. Pray for a clear mind without any of your wants clouding your thinking and spend as much time with Him as you can, pouring into the Word of God, read books that will help you grow and listen to any speakers you can listen to.  Take Him seriously enough to let yourself go.  You really aren’t as big a deal as you think if He isn’t in what you are doing.  Delight yourself in Him!

When I was younger I remember thinking somehow that sounded boring.  Oh great, my desires will become His and I still won’t get what I want.  Hmmmmmm. Why do we always seem to go there?  Just like Eve we start to buy into the lie that God is trying to keep something good from us and that if we follow Him too closely our lives will become everything we don’t want them to be.  Recognize the lies Ladies because there’s no better place to be than in the will of God because that is where you will find Peace, Happiness, Fulfillment and True Success.

Life is tough enough without doing it on your own.  God wants to guide you and bless you all throughout your life.  Lean on Him today and delight yourself in Him, make Him your focus, spend time with Him and allow Him to show you His plan for your life.  God knows even better than you do what will truly make you happy and fulfill you so let yourself go and follow Him with your whole heart, mind and soul.

    God made women with the ability to carry babies in side the womb. then how come some of us have miscarriages and hysterectomies

      That is a good question Debra, I had a miscarriage several years ago. The only answer I can come up with is that we don’t have perfect bodies (unfortunately) and we don’t live in a perfect world and we don’t eat perfectly so there are always times when our bodies don’t behave perfectly either. That is why we have disease too! It breaks my heart when ladies struggle to have a baby when they desperately want one. It breaks my heart too when I see all the disease and cancer in the world today – we have lost 2 and about to more than likely lose a third to cancer in less than a year. One day we will have perfect bodies and there will be no more tears but that won’t happen until we get to heaven!
