“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4 (NIV)
Stop obsessing about what you think you need and start focusing on the Lord who provides your needs. The want of your heart will be provided, if it is a desire that aligns with God’s will and word, but He is the Giver of all good things. He is the God who answers prayer. Don’t manipulate that thing into your life, but allow the Lord to work it out as He sees fit.
When the desire of our heart is received by the providence of God, it is a much sweeter when it’s finally ours. Our duty is not to fix our energy and focus on the want, but on the Provider by seeking Him first so that these things will follow by His grace.
Let’s pray today that we may lay our plans and desires out before our Lord and seek His answers.
