Good morning.

We all like to hear that God wants to give us the desires of our heart. But what is our responsibility when it comes to claiming this promise from God? (Psalm 37:4) We must:

• Delight ourselves in the Lord. (v. 4). As followers of Christ we should rejoice in God. He should be top priority in our life.

• Commit our way to Him. (v. 5). We must allow God to change any aspect of our ambition that is not aligned with His will. It’s good to remember that when He doesn’t answer prayers as we wish, it’s for a reason.

• Trust in Him. (v. 5). God is merciful, all-knowing, kind, and generous. We can trust Him with our hopes and dreams.

• Rest in Him. (v. 7). Resting in the Lord means being at peace with His care and control in your life.

• Wait patiently upon Him (v. 7). Jesus waited decades before beginning His ministry. Like Him, we should be patient.

The Lord longs to give us fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11) and abundant blessings “beyond all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). And when we surrender everything to Him, we’ll experience our Father’s best.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
