The Strongest and Sweetest Songs Yet Remain to be Sung
Psalm 37:3-8
Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and truly you shall be fed.…

The desires of our hearts are better than we know; and it is only as we "trust in God and follow after faithfulness" that God can interpret to us the meaning of our own prayers, our own desires, and give us those better things which are hidden in all His promises. "And He shall give thee" — not merely the petitions of thy lips, for that is a little thing and often not good for us, but He shall give thee a far deeper and purer gift — even "the petitions of thy heart."

(A. E. Hooper.)
