Heart Matters

Psalm 37:4   Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

This speaks of a heart interest toward the Lord that transcends and is deeper than our outward commitments or actions. Something within our heart of hearts that the Lord can see. This comes as we spend time waiting on the Lord and ask Him to make a creative adjustment within us to deal with the desires in our heart and also the hidden things within that we really don’t know or understand that activate us and motivate us at certain points. We are not aware they are there until that situation comes and we find ourselves being lead astray not fully realizing what happened. As we spend time and wait on the Lord, He will deal with these things. We may not understand what is happening while waiting but there will come a readjustment (He shall give..desires) as our heart becomes more aligned with the Lord. Then when that critical time comes again the decision that is made will be towards the Lord and not something else. If in your heart of hearts in those critical moments relating to the things that are known to you and no one else your decision is toward the Lord, the Lord sees that and will honor that as it is now a matter of the heart. Now the desire of your heart is toward the Lord and His favor will rest upon your life as an anointing that will greatly affect everyone in your life as they are lifted from the natural and drawn toward the eternal purposes of The Lord Jesus Christ.
