Psalm 37:4 NIV Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart
When I was younger, I thought this scripture meant that, as we focus on a closer walk with the Lord, He would give us whatever our hearts desired.
During a visit with a friend, she explained that she believed the scripture meant that, not only would God grant us the desires of our hearts, but that God is the one who puts the desires in our hearts to begin with.
I now know that not only does God place the desires into our hearts, but as we seek His will, He gives us the passion, the gifts, talents, and skills to fulfill the desires He has placed within us.
Today, I was thinking of the scripture again as I praised the Lord for this particular season in life, a time of contentment and fulfillment.
Just wanted to share.
and for today, blessings!
