I believe that we should enjoy our relationship with God. The word “delight” is defined as “a feeling of great pleasure, satisfaction, or happiness.” We receive so much from the Lord when we delight ourselves in Him.  The psalmist makes this clear in today’s scripture lesson. In Psalm 37:4, we find these words:

“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires.”

The psalmist is saying that we should rejoice in the Lord and put our trust in Him, for in Him we will find security and blessings that will warm our hearts.  The surrounding verses give instructions for keeping calm in the midst of trouble.  We should not be overwhelmed by evil doers, or envious of those who prosper from evil doing, but rest in the Lord and wait patiently on Him. He will give us the joys of our hearts.  I am so glad that the joy of the Lord is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10). I understand the meaning of the psalmist’s words of instructions — to take delight in the Lord. I have found that when we commit our lives to Him, not only will He make our enemies our footstools, but He will give us the rich blessings that we long for in our hearts.  May we learn to delight in Him and rest on His promises.
