Delight yourself in the LORD

Filed under: God - general — quotable1988 @ 9:51 pm

“Delight yourself 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 act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.” – Psalm 37:4-6

“Think it not hard if you get not your will, nor your delights in this life; God will have you to rejoice in nothing but himself.” – Samuel Rutherford

In this time, when I am seeking the delights of this life–namely, the delight to pursue a woman as God pursues me–may I rest in God. May I never worship the created rather than the creator (who is blessed forever, amen!), the image of God rather than God Himself, or the human embodiment of ultimate love (earthly marriage) rather than the Godly embodiment of that ultimate love (the marriage of the Lamb to His bride).

Amen.
