The Ultimate Delight
Psalms 1:2-3 (KJV)
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
When it comes to food, we all have our favorite delights. You know, those special treats we find so irresistible. Once I had a dream that I was eating the world’s largest tiramisu. Now that was a delight!
The Bible encourages us to make God’s Word our delight. In fact, the Message translation of Psalm 1:2 says to “thrill on God’s Word, you chew on Scripture day and night.” Think about your favorite treat. Is it your mom’s home cooking? If you’re from Chicago, it could be that famous popcorn. Now imagine delighting and desiring the Word of God with the same passion. See yourself “chewing on Scripture” with the same enjoyment.
The great thing about delighting in God’s Word is that unlike other treats, this delight causes us to grow strong, flourish and prosper in all we do. So pull up to the table and have a second helping today.
Success and Progress!
