Psalm 20 – Will God Give Us The Desires Of Our Heart?

Will God give us the desires of our heart? David seems to pray for that to happen in Psalm 20. But is God like a genie or something? Can we rub His tummy or say some magic words and get whatever we wish for?

Let’s shake up the normal order of things for this one. You’ll see why in a moment.

Before we read the Psalm, I’m going to do something I always warn against.

I’m going to pick out 2 verses. And then make a conclusion on those two verses. Well, one and a half verses.

Here they are:

Ps 20:4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.

Ps 20:5 …
May the LORD grant all your requests.

See? Sounds like God’s really going to give us whatever we want!

But – is this for real?

The desires of our heart?

Now, with that in mind, let’s see what this Psalm says, in full.
