Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the LORD,”
[What an easy command to obey, if we are willing. There is so much in you to delight in, Lord. You are the loving and gracious One, full of kindness, goodness and thoughtfulness. You are richly generous, wisely firm, powerfully active and eternally faithful.
You are the good Shepherd, leading us well; you are the mighty Warrior, protecting us from the enemy; you are the Hater of sin, moving to eliminate it from the universe; you are the majestic Savior, providing a door of escape in the wall of condemnation; and you are the Bringer of righteousness, sharing your purity with those who will accept it.
You see all, know all, provide all that is good. You are all-present, all-seeing, all-knowing. You are always with us, protecting from true harm, leading us through deserts and dark valleys, bringing us out into wide pastures. You provide all the grace, refuge and wisdom we need.
You are the Creator, the Sustainer and the Ender of all. You are the Savior, the Sanctifier, our Supervisor. You are the wise One, the wonderful One, the winning One.
You hate sin but love the sinner. You perform the impossible in keeping your law while making a way to redeem us criminals.
You live outside of time, so you know the future. You are never late, always know exactly how to help and give us far more than we need. You give us constant God sightings, providing, protecting and helping us just when we need it. You thereby deepen our understanding of your love and develop our faith, if we are just willing to notice your often subtle work.
You are the King, the Ruler, the Sovereign, our Lord. You are worthy of worship, praise, glory and honor. To delight in you is not hard! Help us to actively do that through this day, giving you honor, bringing joy to us, and deepening our first love for you.
