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.
When God corrects us, it is never pleasant, but if we allow Him to have His way, we will see Him perform wonders within us and upon our circumstances.  As we spend time with Him, He incubates desires deep within us that, in His timing, will be fulfilled - as we delight ourselves in Him.  Let’s choose to be soft and pliable before our Father God.  As we do, we invite Him to move mightily upon the canvass of our lives.
