Delight yourself in the Lord!

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. This verse from Psalm 37:4 is often repeated among the Church with the intent of saying "if you begin to take delight and pleasure in God, you can get whatever your little heart desires, meaning materialistic temporal blessings. While God does bless us with material blessings, that is not the ultimate meaning of this Scripture. Rather, if we truly delight ourselves in the Lord we will find that our affections will begin to shift from earthly desires to heavenly desires, from the temporal to the eternal. We will literally find ourselves thirsting for more and more of God. Because "Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be." Matthew 6:21
