To delight means that we take great pleasure in something. It took me decades of chasing the simple meaningless pleasures offered by the prince of this earth, to realize there is a deeper meaning to life. God finally got my attention. I know God loves me and wants to fellowship with me. I prayed, I lifted my voice in song, I got prophesied over, I went to holiness Charismatic churches and ran rolled around on the floor, and I even went through deliverence. It was revealed to me that God wants credible witnesses. I needed a foundation to base my beliefs. Reading and studying the Bible is how God reaches in and touches that place nothing else can reach. Everyday I pray for the strength to continue daily Bible study.

I think when we are with God we will see the truth and understands and really know what we wanted in life. With God we 'll found out that what we have is the best and the significant of things that we have in life and by seeing this it makes us know that everything has a reason and God has a better plan for us than what we wish for us to have coz sometimes we found at the end that it 's not really what we want. God is the light.

We are to get our pleasure and enjoyment in life by our fellowship with the Lord. Pleasures and cares of the world are only temporary. They do not last, and leave the soul empty and void. But, we are to take delight in spending time in prayer, reading the word of God and having our eyes enlightened with truth by the Holy Ghost. When we do these things, then God will in turn, grant us our wishes, that are according to His will. This is a promise God will fulfill, when we walk upright before Him.

Appear before the lord with full confidence assurance that what ever you desire so long as it is in alignment to his will will be granted to you
Pastor Munachi's comment on 2014-03-19 17:37:02:
to delight in the lord is a difficult thing to a carnal mindf person because it demands his unceasing happiness of life whether the going is good or bad can you said it is well For the presence of GOD is the presence of victory to them that are aware of HIM

Every day this has ring true for me. I have delighted in His glory through good and bad times. Sometimes I forget what I should be greatfull for and then am reminded by a gift of a cross on a chain I received with Psalms 37:4 on it and see it has ring true.

Through my years of life, I believe the greatest truth about God I have learned is to get to know Him and to accept His perfect love. When I pause to ponder this and do this my life changes for the better. It is the greatest thing we can do for God is to love Him in return -- ie "to delight in the Lord, and he will give us the desires of our heart. Then we can accept His perfect will for our life. Our desires will be His desires for us.

God told me to take care of his business and he would take care of mine! I feel this is applicable to this scripture verse!
Go tell it on the mountain! Shout it from the rooftops!

I think it's if you delight yourself in gods ways he wants us to have the good things in life.

Indeed God is ever faithful. When you Submitt your self to him, he will amaze you in a way that you will become an instrument of testimonies

Indeed God knows our very heart, thus what we should be doing is to serve Him with all our heart.As we work for Him and He will give you what is in your heart! You may not realize it but as you continue to serve Him, He will give some desires that are deeply impedded in our heart!You maybe expecting something else but that is just the surface of your heart, we humans are looking at! Continue to serve God and stay blessed.

I think Cheryl Turks' thoughts are right. If you surrender to God, you will live and think in a godly way.
Ariyo Duyilemi's comment on 2013-01-23 12:31:53:
The word of God is the truth.
Cheryle Turk's comment on 2012-11-04 17:59:10:
If your delight is in pleasing God, then your desires conform to HIM, and then His desires become your desires. Your selfish desires are replaced with Godly desires.

I believe it
Vicki's comment on 2012-04-01 22:50:12:
I feel it means, the things that we do to please the Lord and we do it with gladness and joy serving Him, He will in turn provide us with what we need and sometimes what we want. I say sometimes because we don't always need some of the things we want.
Alan's comment on 2011-08-08 18:32:54:
yes, if we make God happy by following and obeying his commandments and principles he will also make us happy.
