“DELIGHT yourself also in the LORD,
And HE shall give you the DESIRES of your heart.”– PSALM 37 : 4
Patrick wished his cousin joyfully with the words,” Happy Birthday Noah!…May GOD bless you with all the desires of your heart”. Usually when we remember someone on their birthdays or special days we bless them with the second part of this amazing verse but unknowingly we miss out to acknowledge the first part, which is precursor of the latter blessings.
DELIGHT IN THE LORD…
In this thought-provoking song of David, he enlightens all of us to realize the beauty in being DELIGHTFUL. He says ‘don’t fret or get annoyed when things don’t happen the way you want them to’. Instead he suggests these few ways to experience the sweet flavor of God’s delight:-
- Give your Creator the full control of every nook and corner of your life.
- Feed on His faithfulness by recollecting the countless blessings you’ve received so far.
- Wait patiently with complete trust laid upon His everlasting promises.
RECEIVE ALL YOUR DESIRES…
How many of us can buy a gift from a shop without paying for its cost first?…The answer would be ‘None!’..
When you happen to learn to Delight in the LORD for ALL that HE’S done in your lives up to this nanosecond (when you are with me reading these words)…it surprisingly means that you have already mastered the key to unlock the ‘Desires of your heart!’
“Embrace His presence with a grateful heart and be amazed as to how He fixes all the unsolved riddles of your life”…..
