  • Delighting in the Lord is finding pleasure and having an overwhelming desire to live a lifestyle well pleasing to God
  • Anthony Sims for verse 4
    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.
