Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and he shall give you the desires of the heart.
Have you ever tried to accomplish something on your own and it just didn’t work? Applying for a job without first praying about it or fasting about it. Sometimes we want a promotion and then we get upset when we don’t get it not knowing that in the long run that promotion would have caused us a lot of strife, less family time, sleepless nights, stressful situations, and a uncomfortable work environment.
God protects us however, there are times when we are to blind to even see it. Just because an opportunity looks good or presents well, we run towards it with open arms without first seeking God's approval before seeking man’s approval.
There was a point in my life when I made so many mistakes simply because I didn’t seek God! It is so easy to pray, read your Bible and wait for God to open the door for you. True promotion and elevation come from God not Man. If I would have only waited for God, I wouldn’t have made so many mistakes in my past. Moving forward and knowing better now I don’t make any decisions without first seeking God approval first and that have saved me from a world of hurt, disappointments, setups and setbacks.
Delight yourself in God first before anyone or anything and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Trust, Believe and have Faith in God.
