Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
The word “delight” in the Hebrew from the above verse means to be soft and pliable. As we find our pleasure in worshiping God and meditating upon His word, we are to allow Him to reveal to us those areas of our lives that need His gentle correction. Like a skillful gardener, He prunes us so that we bear more fruit. When we allow our Father God to minister to us in this way, doors open for Him to grant us the secret petitions of our hearts.
