Siesta Memory Verse 6!!

Psalm 37:4

"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."

There are many desires I have. Personal desires, family desires, monetary desires, relationship desires. I could easily rattle off the old cliche "Anything your heart desires....." as a justification for the things I desire. But then I am reminded that the Bible tells me the heart is deceitful. Could I be deceived by my own desires? Genesis tells us Eve was attracted to the forbidden fruit for to her it was good, pleasing, and desirable! As I commit this verse to memory and really ponder on what it means, I am asking the Lord to be my delight so that my desires will be His desires for me. What could be more delightful than that!

  1. One of my very favorite verses. You are so right about being decieved by our own desires and not those of God. I'm really going to ponder that. I have chosen a verse yet, I hope you don't mind me sharing this one with you. :)
