Our Heart's Desires

by Berni Dymet

Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

It used to seem to me that being a Christian was about following a whole bunch of rules.  And yeah, I guess there are some things God tells us not to do.

I mean I love my kids and I love to bless them - but there are some things that they know I don't want them to do.  When they do those things - I have to tell you, I'm sorry, but the blessing dries up. 

It's just the way things work.

And the more I came to know God - the more I realized what an amazing God He is.  He loves us so much.  He has good things planned for our lives.  And like every other dad - God our Father wants to bless His children.

But here's how it works - an amazing promise straight our of God's Word:

"Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your hearts." 

But do you see that the one follows the other pretty much like … well like night follows day, really.
