I delight to do thy will, O my God; yea, thy law is within my heart.
How can believers delight themselves in the Lord? This is achieved by first acknowledging who God is and His sovereign powers. Also, believers find delight in God by obeying and trusting Him totally as this becomes a faith issue. Believers delight themselves in the Lord by hiding His words in their heart (Psalm 119:11) this is so that God's Word becomes a lamp unto thy feet and a light unto thy path (Psalm 119:105). Delighting one self in God's Word is the spiritual food required for spiritual growth that leads to Christian maturity while developing an intimate relationship with God. Believers delight themselves in God by communing with Him daily through prayer, Bible reading and meditating on His word, and then humbly submitting to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
It is noteworthy to say, that abiding in God's Word and God's Word abiding in each believer (John 15:7) a one-to-one relationship exists. God desires an intimate relationship with His people.
Let's close by saying there is no better delight than in God our creator, sustainer and provider. There is great joy in a close relationship with God as He is an ever present help in the time of need and is our daily guide on our journey.
Lord, I find joy in thy presence. Never hide thy face from me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
