God’s Desires


Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

-Psalms 37:4 NKJV

Your desires prompt you into action and guide you into making decisions toward your wants. This is part of being made in God’s image, because He Himself has desires. What you want is not always good, but the Lord’s desires are always right.

We have a limited view, but He sees everything and knows when a path, person, or object you want will be wrong for you. According to Charles Stanley, sometimes your desires are sinful, selfish, greedy, and foolish, but God is motivated by divine love. He always seeks what’s best for you.

Prayer Focus

Spend some time delighting in the Lord. Just worship Him and His Holiness.

Commit your way to the Lord. Consciously dedicate your time and energy to what He calls you to do.
