Our heart’s desire…


Psalm 37:4 (NIV): “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart”.


Delighting in the Lord means to find joy in Him, it’s to find great pleasure and pure satisfaction in Him. In order for us to delight in God, we need to know Him and have a personal, intimate relationship with Him.

Let us be determined this week to:

Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of our lives! Let’s be preoccupied with acquainting ourselves with God. Let’s get to know Him more. Let’s learn who He is, His character and attributes. Let’s seek fellowship with Him as our main priority. When we get to a place of intimacy with our Heavenly Father, we understand His will and purpose for our lives. It’s then that we realise that our deepest longing is for Him – that whatever we are tasked to do and be here on earth is all about Him. That is when we realise that true happiness and contentment is found in living according to His will – becoming all He created us to be! It’s only then that our deepest longing – the one true desire of our hearts will be to be in the presence of our Lord. Knowing Him and having an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father, means we understand His will for our lives. The natural result is that the desires of our hearts become aligned to all He has purposed for us – and that’s when our good good Father, grants us all (and more) that we ask of Him.

Fill ourselves with God’s Word. It’s the Truth that set’s us free (John 8:32; 17:17). It’s only in and through Jesus that we find out who we are! It’s through God’s Word (the Bible) that we learn more about Him, His plans and purposes for us. We discover His amazing love, grace and mercy in sending Jesus, so that we can live hopeful, content and satisfied lives! Let’s ensure that the desire of our hearts line up with God’s will for our lives. No wise, responsible father would give something to his children that is not for their good. Why then do we get anxious and upset when God doesn’t respond in the time or the way we are expecting? Let’s turn our faces toward God. Let’s walk with Jesus. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to lead, guide and inspire us.


Father God, we are offering our deepest longings to You. The greatest desire of our hearts is to grow in our relationship with You. Lord, we trust You to move in Your way and in the way that will bring You the greatest glory. Father help us not to lose faith, but to keep pursuing You in all we do. Even if we sometimes long for earthly pleasures and wealth; or when it feels like You don’t answer our prayers or give us the desires of our hearts, Lord, please help us to remember that You are our good good Father, Who only wants the best for each one of us! We love and honour You!
