Trust and Delight

Psalm 37:4

Delight requires effort, we must avert our energy from what drains us to what delights us. Many of us don’t delight in the Lord because we don’t know him, and because we don’t know him we don’t trust him ( for how can you trust someone you don’t know?).

Very often we draw our delights in life from sources that run dry and ignore the only source that runs over, God. 

If God is the place we delight, he gives us himself, that is more than we can ask or imagine to have. For in him there is fullness of joy. 

Seek first the kingdom of God – says Jesus ( Matthew 6:33) and all these things will be added to you. 

Our seeking determines what is important to us. Oftentimes we have experienced seeking for a certain thing in order to bring us delight and happiness and when we have attained that we have found out that it did not give us what we thought it would.  

In order to prevent us from wasting our time and eventually our lives running after things which will disappoint us, the scripture tells us to delight in the Lord. For if we focus on him, he will give us more than we desire or wish. The Lord is the source of all good things that don’t run out.
