Delight changes desire

Delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Ps. 37:4

The real joy  is not in gaining what we desire but in the delightful journey towards it. In fact, delighting in the Lord over a period of time is likely to alter the desires of our hearts. The more aware we are of His delightful presence in each moment of our lives, the more we soak up His personality and see through His eyes. His desires become our own. This is a somewhat more organic and enjoyable process than simply doing what we perceive to be His will because we are supposed to.

Lord, to know You deeply and fully is the desire of my heart.
