Delight Yourself in the Lord

“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:3

To delight yourself in the Lord is to desire and enjoy the nearness of his presence and the truth and righteousness of his word. To those who delight themselves in the Lord, God gives the desires of their hearts. God will answer the cry of our hearts if our desires are in accordance with his will. When we delight ourselves in God and his will, God himself places desires within our hearts that he then sets out to fulfill. (NIV Study Notes, 797)

Take time out to give the Lord your time, effort, and praise. Delight yourself in him with an attitude of gratitude and humility. He is waiting to bless you beyond what you could ask or think.
