Psalm 37:4 says to delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Some might see that verse to mean that God will give a person whatever he or she wants. While that's a nice notion, I don't think it gets to the heart of the verse. See, when a person delights himself in God his desires change because God isn't interested in the things of man. Rather, his desires become similar to God's desires. I think it's also a fair statement to consider that the desires of your heart reveal something about your delight in the Lord. If your desires are similar to those of carnal man (greed, lust, hatred, etc.), then it might be reasoned that you're not delighting in Him. What are the desires of your heart? Where do they point?
You are here: / / The desires of your heart (Psalms 37, 71, and 94)
