Triumph

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

  • Daily
  • Everything
  • Laid
  • In
  • God’s
  • Hands
  • Triumphantly

We all have desires, wants and dreams in this life. Yet, we can get frustrated when we don’t see them become reality. Inserting the above acrostic in place of the word ‘Delight’, the verse would read something like this–

If every day you laid everything in God’s hands, expecting Him to help you overcome and be victorious in your life, you will find that He will give you the desires of your heart.

What I like about doing this, is that it helps give an understanding to this verse – that when it comes to our dreams, goals and desires, God isn’t a mean ‘dad’, just saying ‘no’ because He can. But rather, He knows that if we make Him first place in our lives, resting ourselves in the hope He brings, then the victory, success, dreams and goals we achieve will be according to His plan for our lives and not just us striving to do something great to ‘keep up with the Jones’, build our own empire and bring ourselves fame and fortune. All those things will eventually fade way, but it’s what we do according to God’s plans for our lives that will last forever.

‘For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail.  But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.’ – Acts 5:38-39
