Delight Yourself

The bible says that when we delight ourselves in God he gives us the desires of our hearts. I've seen many people (myself included) who have twisted this verse to mean very narrow things. Like "If I just put God first he'll give me that promotion..." which really doesn't put God first at all.

It seems to me, that when a person delights in something or someone, the very delight people possess becomes almost inseparable from their desire. No doubt God sees certain good, earthly desires that we have, and gives them to us - like a sick person getting better, or a child coming back to the Lord.

We are creatures with numerous and complex desires, but if we truly delight in God as our first and highest treasure he will also become our first and highest desire.

"Delight Yourself" is a song just about that...
