What do you want? That is a pretty big question. Whenever I pull up to a drive thru window for dinner, I ask the kids, “What do you want?” Every year in November, this is again what I ask my kids as I prepare my Christmas shopping list. What do you want?
Today’s verse says that if we make God our utmost delight, our greatest pleasure, He will give us what we desire most. He will give us what we want. We tend to focus on the second part – that He will provide for you what you desire most. We always make it about what we want. But we miss the first part. We miss how we first delight in Him.
This is a game changer. See when you fix your eyes on Him, when you focus on Him and do life with Him, then what you desire most changes. If He is your utmost delight, He is your greatest desire. When He is your greatest pleasure, everything else you want flows from Him. The focus is never on what you are provided, but the Provider. The gift is never the resulting blessing; the true gift is God being your utmost delight and pleasure of your life. He is the blessing.
“Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of your life, and he will provide for you what you desire the most.” – Psalm 37:4 [TPT]
