 Delight Yourself in God
 

   WEDNESDAY
    JUNE. 27

   
 

Psalm 37:3-4 (NKJV), John 4:33-34 (NIV)
Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. *Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.


Author1 PhotoTo delight yourself in someone or in something is to be glad, to enjoy and to derive great satisfaction and pleasure from being with that person or from doing that thing. When we really delight in something, no one will have to force us to do that thing and we would do the thing with our whole being. The way we delight ourselves in God is by being joyful about worshipping Him, spending time in His presence, meditating on His Word and praying unto Him and also by pleasing Him and doing His will. Right now, there are new things being developed in the world almost every single day to excite us, delight us, satisfy us, and also to take our attention. God has given us all things to enjoy (1Tim.6:17) but we must never let any of these things take His place in our lives. Truly nothing can give us true joy, satisfaction and blessings like when we delight ourselves in God.

We have to deliberately train ourselves to delight ourselves in God and not to allow anything else take God's place in our lives. There are so many wonderful blessings tied to delighting ourselves in God. Isaiah 58:14 says “then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it”. Delighting ourselves in God's Word and meditating on it day and night make us like trees planted by the rivers of water, that are always divinely fruitful and prosperous, Psa.1:2-3. The more we delight in God, the more we will know His will and the more we align ourselves to His will the more fulfilled and victorious we would be.

PRAYER FOCUS: Tell God that you want to know Him more and you want to please and fellowship with Him more than everything else.
