God gives us this amazing promise, and I’ve lived most of my life without making any attempt to take Him up on it: “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalms‬ ‭37:4‬) Is He serious about giving us what we desire, or is this just a metaphor for Heaven?

You won’t know it until you try it.

Step back a minute and ask yourself where you find your greatest “delight.” Is it in the things or people God created—or, is it in GOD—Who created all these things? If He created the things we delight in, doesn’t that make us curious about the wonderful being who creates such things?

What does it mean to “delight” in God, anyway?

I would have never been able explain it, until I experienced it. I describe it several ways. He captivates, excites, and thrills me. Reading His Word fill me with excitement and joy. The promises in His Word overflow my heart with love. For most of my Christian life, I never experienced anything even close to delighting in God. I actually dreaded the idea of seeking Him. To read His Word was more of an obligation than an attraction. Church was my social club. This negativity was not His fault.

The world had peddled darkness as light, and painted a picture of God that was ugly. I was more in love with the world, than I was with the Creator of the world. I’d only delighted in Creation; never in the Creator.

It’s impossible for us to delight in what we have not known.

Our Father loves to us delight.

I love to see my children enjoy my homemade pie; but God’s love is a billion times greater than mine and thus, how much more does He desire to give us the desires of our heart? His sacrifice proves it. He knows our greatest desires better than we do; after all, He designed each of us. When we passionately seek Him, His presence captivates our heart and we live in the rich rewards of His presence.
