The Doorpost: Our heart's desire

Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

— Psalm 37:4

The prophet Jeremiah says that our hearts are deceitful and corrupt (Jeremiah 17:9), so how can our Holy God give us the desires of our hearts? By changing our hearts.

When we delight in the LORD, our hearts are transformed so we desire the good things God wants to give us. Then we pray to Him and He gives them to us. When we delight in Him and seek Him, we will lack no good thing (Psalm 34:10).

The key is for us to worship the Lord and delight in Him, not anyone or anything else. When we delight in Him, seeking Him above all else, He will give us the desires of our hearts.
