Delight Yourself in the Lord

by Vonette Bright

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.”  Psalm 37:4 (NIV)

Shirley’s life was one hurt after the other.  Two divorces and the challenges of a blind son had left her aching to be happy.

One day as she read the Bible verse:  “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” she decided to do exactly what it says. Delight in the Lord! She began praising God! – no matter what happened.

The car wouldn’t start.  Praise God.  Her boss was unreasonable that day. Praise to You, Lord.

It wasn’t long before the “desires” of her heart began to change.  Did she suddenly have a wonderful marriage?  A son easy to rear?  No.  She discovered the joy of God’s love and His blessings on her life – despite the circumstances.

Dear one, delight in the Lord.  He will give you the desires of your heart.

One Response to Delight Yourself in the Lord

  1. Stephen Bernard says:

    Delighting in the Lord in the middle of crisis, is the hardest part of one’s faith-life. In a life before, it wouldn’t be this harder, because, we now believe in one Who can do anything anytime, to the ones who trust in Him! That’s the faith! Before, we fall and possibly drown in depression, we have to look back what had happened in the past and how, The One whom you trust had solved greater crisis, than the present one. Then, we can start delighting in the Lord, truly.
    Thank you for this inspiring devotional.
