"Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart." (Psalm 37:4)

This doesn’t mean he’ll give us whatever we desire. In a sense that would be cruel and dangerous.

This verse means the more we offer Him our pleasure, satisfaction, and delight as a surrendered gift, the more the desires we have will change to match His. It’s really a matter of trust. And a matter of rightly placing our delight into the hands of the only One ever meant to hold the weight of something that precious.
