Hello, my name is Johnny Taylor and I am with Flowing Oil Ministries and welcome to God Today. I want to tell you a verse that I believe is probably one of my favorite verses in the Bible. It’s Psalm 37:4. It says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Growing up as a child and even as an adult, that verse – I had always heard it. If you just delight yourself in the Lord He will give you whatever you want. Sometimes we would grab hold of that, but later in life, He would give me a deeper meaning of that verse.
He simply says, “If you’ll delight yourself in me”. And that word “delight” has so many meanings. But it means not only to dive in, to just delight yourself in Him. It means to delight yourself in worship, it means to delight yourself and abide in Him in that place where it’s just you and Him. He says once you delight yourself in Him and you dive in and you’re in Him and He’s in you and your thoughts are His thoughts and His ways are your ways. He said when you delight yourself in Him, He says He will take that desire that’s in His heart for you and He will place it in your heart. Then that desire becomes your desire. Then you begin to pray back to Him what you want Him to do which was originally what He wanted to do for you. So, He wanted to do it for you more than you wanted Him to do it. You begin to pray back to Him what He has dropped in your spirit and you’re actually praying His will. When you pray back to Him what He has dropped in your spirit, that He wanted to do from the beginning. Then the Bible says He will give you the desire of your heart which was His desire. So it’s 100%.
Today, I’m telling you. Delight yourself in the Lord and He has a purpose for you and a destiny for you. Delight yourself in Him and He will drop His desire for you in your spirit. Pray that back to Him and He’s 100% going to do it. I want to pray for you today. Delight yourself in the Lord. Worship Him. Abide in Him and Him in you. As He drops these desires into your heart speak them right back to Him. The Bible says He will give you the desires of your heart. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
