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

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

As my heart delights in God, God’s will, and God’s purposes, I find an amazing truth at work: when I desire what God wills, God enjoys giving me the desires of my heart. An old hymn used the phrase, “’til I am wholly lost in Thee.” When that happens, when our will is yielded to God and our heart delights to honor him, then God is longingly waiting for us to request the desires of our heart so he can bless us!

My Prayer…

Holy LORD, God of our Fathers and great Giver of every perfect gift, thank you for longing to bless me and pour the riches of your grace upon me. Please touch my heart to desire your will and then to boldly ask you to accomplish it to your glory. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
