Take delight in me.

How often do you take time to just simply delight in the Lord? I have been doing studies on the book of Psalms this past month and I have noticed quite a bit of scripture that talks about delighting yourself in God. And I couldn't help but ask God heart to heart if I have delighted in Him lately and constantly? Does He have my everything? Life can get out of hand sometimes, and we have all these obstacles coming at us constantly and it has become so extremely easy to think about things we don't have and praying about everything that has gone wrong in our lives. We get so caught up in the world that we forget what life is really about! It's about using everything you have for the Glory of God! About seeking first His Kingdom, doing everything with you greatest ability because you know your doing it for Christ.  Laying everything down before The Lord and taking delight in Him every second of the day. Our lives, attitudes  and perspective on things would be so much more joyful if we looked to the Lord with delight. Because we would see that He is all that matters and He is all that we need!

So let us wake up every morning praising God for His amazing personality and love. And ask yourself  "What can I do today for the Lord to find delight in me?

 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
 -- Psalm 37:4

the Lord delights in those who fear him,    
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
- Psalm 147:11

Great are the works of the Lord;  
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
- Psalm 111:2

“I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart” 
 - Psalm 40:8

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,   
 which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—  
 whatever they do prospers.
Psalm 1:1-3

Do not fret because of those who are evil   
or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,   
 like green plants they will soon die away.
Trust in the Lord and do good;   
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,  
 and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord;  
 trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,    
your vindication like the noonday sun.
- Psalm 37:1-6

The Lord makes firm the steps   
of the one who delights in him;
though he may stumble, he will not fall,    
for the Lord upholds him with his hand.
- Psalm 37:23-24

the Lord delights in those who fear him,    
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
- Psalm 147:11

The Lord detests those whose hearts are perverse,    
but he delights in those whose ways are blameless.
- Proverbs 11:20

The Lord detests lying lips,    
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.
- Proverbs 12:22

Happy Monday precious ladies!
