He will give you the desires of your mind

Speaker: Apostle Ernie

In Psalm 37:4, we read, Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Who is “the Lord” in Psalm 37:4? If we read this psalm in Hebrew, it says, delight in Yehovah, and He (Yehovah) will give you the desires of your heart.

How do we delight in Yehovah? The word used here for “delight” tells us to love Yehovah. So the question is, how do we love Yehovah? The Gospel of John says we love Yehovah by obeying His law, the law of Moses.

So another way of translating Psalm 37:4 would be: Love Yehovah and obey His law, then He will give you the desires of your heart.

How are we to understand the last part of the sentence; the desires of our heart? When Psalm 37 was written, society understood the physical heart as the center for our mind, will, and emotions. So every time you see the word heart in your Bible, remember it refers to the mind, the will, and emotions instead of the physical heart.

Another way of translating Pslam 37:4 could be: Love Yehovah, obey His law, then He will give you what your mind desires.

What is the desire of your mind right now?

Whatever circumstance you find yourself in, whatever you might be lacking right now is the desire of your mind.

If you will change focus and instead make Yehovah and His law the desire of your mind, then Yehovah promises He will give you whatever you might be lacking right now.

Start today and make Yehovah and His law, the law of Moses, the desire of your mind. Then, and only then, will Yehovah give you the desire of your mind, whatever it might be.
