A Thought

“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and feed on His faithfulness.  Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”  Psalm 37:3-4

One must always remember that “desires of the heart” are necessarily linked to hearts devoted to the Lord and His own will.  Often our hearts can deceive us because our own desires are not always in sync with the will of the Lord.  It is very poetic and romantic to say “follow your heart”, but it is more realistic to say “the heart wants what the heart wants” regardless of the source of that desire.

But when we take “delight in the Lord”, we enjoin ourselves to Him in such a way that the “desires of our hearts” are His desires; not our own.  It is wisdom from Above that teaches us to tell the difference.
