Psalm 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the Lord and HE will give you the desires of your heart.”

What does this passage mean? To the typical Christian in today’s society it means, “Be happy and in joy because of your relationship with your Lord God and for what he has done for us as a people, and He will fulfill your heart’s desire”. Now let’s break it down and see what the original meaning from the Hebrew means.
The word delight comes from the Hebrew word, anag, meaning “make yourself moldable and pliable”. He needs us to have the ability to be molded into the Kingdom creature He has created us to be. If we are too rigid in our ways or too stiff in our beliefs when He tries to mold us, through the trials mentioned in James, we will “crack”. Then we will not be able to achieve the greatness the Lord God has laid up for all his children.

Then it goes on to say: “…and He will give you the desires of your heart.” The word “give” is from the Hebrew word, nathan, which means “to ascribe or write, add, and apply”. With this being said, now Psalm 37:4 takes on a new meaning.
“Make yourself moldable and pliable in the Lord and he will ascribe or write or add your desires on your heart.”

He gives you your “desire packet” with all the desires needed to step into your purpose. He also writes the “desire packet” on your subconscious or your will for the assignment He has called you to. These desires are of God and were written to ignite passion in you in order to achieve your assignment or “purpose” no matter what obstacle might get in your way. If you’re not sure the desire you have is of God, do a simple evaluation. See if it is coming from fear (disempowerment / victim state of being) or faith (empowering / victor state of being). If the desire does not contradict the word, it is God ordained.

At this point, move forward with discernment and don’t second guess yourself. Second guessing only leads to becoming a “double minded” and “powerless” Christian. The kingdom of God needs strong focused single minded citizens that can wield the power of God and assume their assignment for the Glory of God!
The non Christian is focused and single minded about his cause. His focus is on attaining wealth for himself and his own purpose. We as Christians must become single minded in our cause as well. However, our resolve is to see wealth in our hands as a tool to be used for the Kingdom of God! Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Stop thinking, start knowing and focus on building the kingdom of God!
