Delight and Desires
Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalm37:4)

Delight in God has a transforming power and lifts a man above the gross desire of our fallen nature.
Delight in Jehovah is not only sweet in itself, but it sweetens the whole soul, till the longings of the
heart become such that the Lord can safely promise to fulfill them. Is not that a grand delight that
molds our desires till they are like the desires of God?
Our foolish way is to desire and then set to work to compass what we desire. We do not go to work in
God’s way, is to seek Him first and then expect all things to be added unto us. If we will let our
heart be filled with God till it runs over with delight, then the Lord Himself will take care that we shall
not want any good thing. Instead of going abroad for joy let us stay at home with God and drink
water out of our own fountain. He can do for us far more than all our friends. It is better to be content
with God alone than to go about fretting and pining for the paltry trifles of time and sense. For a while
we may have disappointments; but if these bring us nearer to the Lord, they are things to be prized
exceedingly, for they will at the end secure to us the fulfillment of all our right desires.
