So I was emailing to a friend about Patience and all that fun stuff and came across this verse and It pretty much jumped out at me too.... ummmmmm hmmmmm Patience I think we could all use a big dose of that!!!! Hope you enjoy!!
Psalms 37:4-7 says: Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
God knows the secret petitions of your heart. He knows every unspoken dream and every hidden desire that you have for your life. He knows those things that you haven’t told anybody else. Maybe you were believing for something that you have decided will never come to pass, or maybe you buried a dream or goal because things were not falling into place on your time table. Maybe, in the natural, you have every reason to give up on your dreams. Be encouraged today – weather you can see it or not, God is still working behind the scenes on your behalf! He is preparing you for your future. He is getting ready to bring the right people across you path. He is preparing to open a door of opportunity and blessing for you that no man can shut!
And while God is doing His part, we have to do what the verse days and delight ourselves in Him today. The work delight actually means to make you soft and pliable. It’s the picture of God as the Potter and you as the clay. Put yourself in God’s capable hands. Allow Him to mold and sharp your character. Relax and rest in the knowledge that He is in charge of your life. Allow Him to direct your plans and ideas. Keep an attitude of faith and expectancy today. As you submit your ways to the Lord and open your heart to His leading, He will fulfill those secret petitions of your heart!
