The Desires of My Heart

[This post is one of my Ten Bible Verses I Try to Live By]

Psalm 37:4 is one of my favorites. The NIV version reads

“Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you
the desires of your heart.”

I often feel this verse is misinterpreted.

It doesn’t tell us that once we devote ourselves to God He will bless us abundantly with those things on our wish list. He’s not Santa, waiting to mark us on the “Good” List; or withhold from us when we make mistakes.

Rather, it’s when we find ourselves lost in Him that … read the rest. . .
