Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Of course, everyone wants to receive the desires of their hearts, however, we first must delight ourselves in the Lord. But, what does delighting ourselves mean? Does it mean we pray 3 hours a day, go to church every Sunday, or read our Bibles whenever we can?

Let’s see how the Word of God defines delighting ourselves in the Lord. 

Isaiah 58:13-14 “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, From doing your pleasure on My holy day, And call the Sabbath a delight, The holy day of the LORD honorable, And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, Nor finding your own pleasure, Nor speaking your own words, Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD; And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

Does this mean we have to do everything on this list to delight ourselves in the Lord? Of course not, because we’re not under the law. However, the underlying tone in Isaiah 58 is submission. When we submit our thoughts, actions, and words to the Lord, we’re delighting ourselves in the Lord. 

As a result of our delight or submission to God, we position ourselves to receive the desires of our hearts, live the “high life,” and enjoy the best. 
Now it’s time for you to be such a delight.
