Delight in the Lord: Receive the Desires of Your Heart

Psalm 37:3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.

“He shall bring IT to pass..” What is “it.” It is whatever you need or want.

Delight is a simple word with profound significance. This word is profound because delight reflects our desire, disposition, and direction. The word is a verb as an action word. It is a noun as a thing. It is an adjective when used as delightful.

Delight definition: Take pleasure in, desire, incline to; to bend; favor, be (well) pleased, have pleasure,

To “delight” is to incline or bend ourselves towards the objects of our desire and sources of our pleasure. Most of our pain or satisfaction in life comes from what we desire and how we are bent. Most importantly, the direction of our bent or delight determines our success in achieving the desires of our hearts.

A lot of people live in frustration for misunderstanding this principle. The Word of God provides guidance in how to delight in life.

Look again at the text:

Psalm 37:3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.

Look at the action words:

Trust (in the Lord), Do (good), Dwell (in the land), Feed (on His faithfulness), Delight (yourself in the Lord), Commit (Your way to the Lord), Trust (in Him)

The key promise in that text is, Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
