“Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart” says Psalm 37:4. God satisfies or “gives” us our desires…the desires that He has put within our hearts that line up with His will. I bet when you read the word desire here, you don’t have to search far in your heart for the ones that mean the most or the ones that you’ve been holding on for the longest.
But also, Jesus satisfies our yearnings--those unfulfilled desires--our anticipations and our anxieties that occur as we are waiting for the manifestation of that thing. He fulfills even up until that thing has actually come to pass or come to be received into your hands and life. I was singing the lyrics “He satisfies my desires”.
Besides salvation itself, this is one of the things I appreciate most about Jesus. He satisfies; He
makes it and my heart okay right where I am at now…right in my very current situation.
So no matter what we are asking, seeking and waiting for--a job/career, a wife, a husband, a change in financial status, a child—Jesus satisfies even right now. “For He satisfies the longing soul,and fills the hungry soul with goodness” (Psalm 107:9 NKJV).
