Delight in the Lord (Psalm 37:4-5)

by Dr. Jerry Brown
Guest writer

How do we delight in the Lord?

My life verse is Psalm 37:4: Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. In the day and time we are living in, we all need encouragement and reassurance that we are going to be okay and all our needs will be met. Well, verse 5 says: Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will do this.

God is Sovereign, so why is it a problem to delight in the Lord?

We have no need to fear the future for the future is in God’s hands. God is Sovereign! So what is the problem? The problem is us. We say we trust God and are committed to Him, but we try to handle things on our own without God. That is why Psalms 37: 4-5 is my life passage. When I have a giant problem, it reminds me to relinquish it to Him.

Delight, commit, and trust

Try it the next time you are faced with an impossible situation and discover as I have, God can handle it better than I can. God bless all who read and heed this devotion.
