Power Verse # 9 - Psalm 37:4


"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)


This is another powerful verse from God whose promise is to give us the desires of our hearts if we will delight in the Lord. Delight in the Lord means we are happy and content in obeying His will for our lives. Delight in the Lord means our happiness is contingent with a right and faithful relationship with the Lord and that our joy comes from obeying all that the Lord wants in our lives. It is just like a piece of machinery directly attached to its main power source so that it functions very smoothly and efficiently. If we are connected directly to the Lord through obedience to His will, we will always be happy and the Lord's joy and peace will always be present in our hearts. We can have anything that our hearts desire so long as what we desire is in the will of the father.
