“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” Psalm 37:4, NKJV.
Your heavenly Father is a good God, and just like an earthly father, when it is according to His word, He’ll give it to you. I have gone to my children on several occasions and asked them what they wanted, but they didn’t know. So I would wait for them to decide. I would ask them questions to help them along to see the true desires of their own heart, what will make them happy and then when they saw it, I blessed them with it.
Sometimes, as men we can find ourselves stagnant or wandering in life, when the heart of it is, if we’re honest, we simply don’t know what we want, or haven’t decided what to go after. It seems very simple, but with certain decisions, it can be challenging. No matter the area or path of life, ask God to help you see what you really want. Delight yourself in the Lord, pursue the Lord, and He will show you your own heart, who you are, and His will for you. Jesus the Good Shepherd desires for you to abide satisfied.
Verse 5 says, “Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.” Now that you know what you want, you can then commit to that course, and the Lord will help you get there. He will bring it to pass.
Prayer: Father, I delight in You and in Your plan for me. In every area, help me discover what I really want and show me what is best for me. As I ask, I will not settle. I commit my way to You, trusting You will bring it to pass. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
