"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Ps. 37:4
The ladies at church went to a Beth Moore simulcast conference yesterday and Friday night. It was awesome. Beth taught on Psalm 37 and the key verse was 4. I'm going to memorize it. It holds such meaning for me now.
When you see a baby's first smile, it brings such joy to your life. When you hear a baby's first laugh, you receive such delight. I want the Lord to feel that way about me. I want to bring Him joy and delight, because He brings me such joy and delight!
Beth challenged us to look beyond the desires of our heart to the heart of our desires. She said: "When it's all said and done, we do what we really want to do." She's right. So, my desire is to want to delight myself in the Lord more than any thing else. I want my desires to be His desires. I want His desires to be my desires.
The Lord has delighted me in so many ways, lately. Through friends and family, He has shown His love and care. I feel so blessed. I'm amazed at how wonderful He is to us.
How about you? How has God delighted in you, lately? Or, how have you delighted in God, lately? Let me hear from you.
