Motivate Me Monday -The Desires of Your Heart.

Fifth Street Palace

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

I love this verse and the promise that it holds.

The definition of delight is: a high degree of pleasure or enjoyment; joy.  God wants us to take pleasure in Him.  He wants us to enjoy our relationship with Him.  He wants us to have joy.

On top of all that, if we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our hearts.  What amazing love!

It is already an enormous gift to have the joy of the Lord and He want to add to that by giving us the things we want.

I really want to encourage you to think about the desires of your heart.  Pray that they would be in God's will.

He wants you to have abundant life.  If you don't know what the desires of your heart are then pray and ask God to place good desires in your heart.

I am so excited to share my desires with my Father.

Oh, praying that they would be in God's will. I really need to do that with every desire, and I'm so guilty of not. Thank you for this reminder.

God truly DOES give you the desires of your heart when you leave it all in His lap. I recently experienced this with furthering my education. In HIS time, He opened up the doors for me! :)
