Word Filled Wednesday–Pure Delight

WFWlogo

Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalms 37:4

Pure delight in one’s life comes when the desires of your heart are the very ones the Lord put there and fulfills.  He can bring out beauty from ashes and transform our failures into fruitfulness.  There is nothing too hard for the Lord.
Ask Him today to put His desires in your heart.  As they unfold in His time, you will be delighted…in Him!

  1. Wonderful post! As you say, the more we know Him, the more we love Him.... the more His desires for us become our desires. What a great truth!

  2. Beautiful. Immature Christians think this verse is a spiritual credit card - in that the Lord will give you everything and anything your heart desires.

    You are right, it truly is about the Lord putting desires into our hearts. Thank you for the precious reminder of beauty coming from ashes. By faith, I'm expecting a HUGE amount of beauty in the Lord's timing.

  4. Have you ever noticed that the more we delight ourselves in the Lord the more the desires of our hearts become the same as His desires for us?
