‭‭Psalm‬ ‭37:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Let’s face it—most of read into this a genie-in-a-bottle take on God. If we rub the bottle, ie go to church and do good things, God will give us what we want. But the psalmist is bringing a totally different message. To “delight” in the Lord means taking pleasure in spending time in His presence, savoring the richness of His Word and falling in our faces in humble prayer. As we do this He gives us pure hearts with desires that bring glory and honor to Him. Those wishes really do come true!
