—Psalms 37:4 "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart."
In the persons in God, Father, Son, and Spirit. In the perfections of God, his #power
In his works of creation, providence, and redemption. In his word, his Gospel, the truths and ordinances of it. In his house, and the worship of it. And in his people, the excellent in the earth, in whom was all the delight of the psalmist. And each of these afford a field of delight and pleasure, to attend unto, contemplate, and meditate upon.
"And he shall give thee the desires of thine heart"
Such as are according to the will of God, and for the good of his people. Such as relate to communion with him, and to the communication of more grace from him. And to the enjoyment of eternal glory.
The most beautiful verse in the Bible to me, that says this same thing is:
—John 15:7 "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."
The key to this is abide. If we are hid in Christ and He is uppermost in our thoughts and deeds, then He will give us the desires of our heart. We will not want things that would not be in His will to give us. The desire of our heart would be to do His will. All through the Bible, we see blessings abundant, if we are obedient to His Word. If we do not obey His Word there are curses abundant. The blessings depend on us lining our will up with the will of God.
