Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
C.S. Lewis notes how believers often underestimate the full riches God has for His children. “If we consider the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea.”
In Psalm 37 we read that if we take pleasure in seeking the presence of God then he will grant us the desires of our hearts. If you know Christ as Saviour then you are seated in him in heavenly places; you have a vantage point in Christ! And in the Torah God says, “God will make you abundantly prosperous in all the work of your hand.” In the Proverbs we’re reminded that if we commit our work to the Lord our plans will be established. And finally, in Hebrews 11 God’s Word tells us that he will reward us if we seek him in faith.
The Lord desires to grant you the desires of your heart. He has great and wonderful plans for you –plans for your welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. God is your Father, the Father of heavenly lights from whom every good perfect gift comes. Your Lord desires for you to be successful in all you do. However, there is one condition: delight yourself in him.
God-tracking is delighting in the God of your success

“Dear Father God, thank you for the promises of your word that you desire to grant me my desires and meet my needs. I believe your Word is your will and I thank you, O Lord, that I read in your Word that it is your intension to reward my faith as I seek you. Therefore, I wholeheartedly put my faith in your exceedingly great reward, the greatest of which is eternal life through Jesus Christ my Lord.
