Take delight in the Lord and he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalms 37:4 NLT
David says to take delight in the Lord. When you delight in something or someone it brings great joy to your heart. You are happy in the presence of that person. Psalm 1:2 says, “But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.” So when we delight in the Lord, it’s not a chore to read the Bible; it’s not pulling teeth to enter into worship; it’s not boring to pray because there is great joy in the presence of the Lord.
There are benefits to delighting in the Lord. David said in Psalm 91:15, “When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.” The benefits are amazing. Many times, people want to take a short cut because all they want are the benefits of delighting but they don’t want to spend time with God. If you want God to give you the desires of your heart, delight in the Lord.
Thought for Today: God blesses those who delight in Him.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory
