"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." - One of the most quoted verses in the bible from the book of Psalm right? People love to quote it, because to them it means that God will give them what they want. Is this true? I think it certainly is true, but I also think there is much more to it then that.
I have learned to be careful with this verse. Most often for me it turns sour because I get my hopes up about something that doesn't end up working out how I thought. Then I get upset with God, when I KNOW that his plan is the BEST plan. So why do I still get so upset when things don't go "my way" when I know that what He has in store is better?!
But what does it mean to Delight Yourself in the Lord exactly? Understanding that He is the only one I need. Figuring out how to run to him not some of the time, but everytime I am hurt, upset, in need, excited, anxious, nervous... you get the point.
Lord teach me how to better take Delight in you. Help me with patience, and remembering in the moment that what you have planned for me far surpasses the desires of my heart.
Love and Taking Delight
