"Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." - Psalm 37:4

In verses 3-7 the Psalmist gives us 7 steps to spiritual success and blessing in our lives. The first one is to trust God. The second is to delight. Is there someone you just love being with? You cannot stand being apart. You are like peas in a pod. When they have to leave, you are already longing to be together again. You spend so much time together that you become like each other. This is what the Psalmist is meaning when he says we need to delight in God. Do you take time each day to be in His presence? Do you love reading His Word and talking to Him each day in prayer? Is He included in all your thoughts and activities? Some refer to this as "practicing the presence of God." When we develop this type of relationship with Him, our lives are changed and we become like Him. We become like Him and He gives us the desires and secret petitions of our hearts. We would like to just have Him give us what we want, but this is actually the result of the change that has taken place in our lives. Spending time with Him becomes our new passion. Make Jesus your best friend today. Spend time reading His message to you in His Word and take time to talk to Him. Enjoy His presence.
