Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” PSALM 37:4
Which side of the comma are you living in?
Delight or desires?
What you focus on determines what you experience.
Take delight in the Lord,
And he will give you the desires of your heart?
When you are focusing on delighting (joy, great enjoyment, and pleasure) in the Lord, the world is a wide-open space for you to experience with someone you love.
When you are focusing on the desires of your heart, the world is a small closed space where you can only see what you don’t have and envy what everyone else seems to have.
Living on the delight side of the comma means that your focus is on your relationship with God and trusting Him with the rest.
There is sweet freedom found in delighting in your relationship with God while letting Him hold your desires.
He is a good Father and knows (and loves) you more than you know (and love) yourself.
