Prayer Encouragements

“Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.”
Psalm 37:4

Many of us may believe that God LOVES us… that’s God’s job! He’s SUPPOSED to love us. But, do we believe that God actually LIKES us? Or do we think of God “loving us” more out of toleration than desire.

This verse from Psalm 37:4 is just 1 of many that God has used to challenge me in my attitude in prayer. Here is a thought: “If God actually makes it possible for us to delight in Him, so that He will give us the desires of our heart, then does it also not make sense that God also delights in us FIRST?”

The next time you pray, begin with the perception and attitude that God actually LIKES you and DELIGHTS in you, and see how it affects your prayer time. You may be surprised by how much you start enjoying your time in prayer/relationship with God!
