Inspirational Bible Verses: "He Will Give you the Desires of Your Heart."

This inspirational Bible verse needs some explanation because it is often misinterpreted in a
man-centered way.

Trust in the LORD and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it. Psalm 37:3-5

Trust in the LORD and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.

This whole Psalm deals with those who are seeking to do God's righteousness, to give to the poor, to be an upright and just person, to contribute to other needs, clothing the naked and visiting widows and orpans.

Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.

He're where explanation is needed...so many people looking for encouraging Bible verses look to this one because they think that if they delight in the Lord, then He will give them what they want.

The correct interpretation would be that if we take a whole-hearted satisfaction in Jesus, he will mold and shape our hearts so that we have proper desires.

In doing so, as we commit our path to He will be faithful to establish our ways before Him. It's certainly one thing to get what you want from God, but I think you will agree it is another thing to be transformed by Him...
