    What a great Psalm!

    To delight in something you love it, you enjoy it, and it becomes apart of you in everything you do, and say. The Lord becomes a way of life, a relationship. I guess I would answer the question with Scripture,:

    Mark 12:30
    Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' [ Deut. 6:4,5]

    But we also note that God's blessings dont rely on anything we do, but it is a free gift, because He delights in us.

    Great question Freed!
    God Bless you

    Enjoying the sense of His Peace to the fullest within your whole being, especially in the headquarter in the deepest of your very soul, which literally whatever else is going on in your life, absolutely none of it can take it away from you no matter how hard that thing and/or someone may try; for that delight in the Lord is your faith and ultimate strength against all the evil of this world! Thank God and Amen!

    Freed, it's your name! To delight also means to be FREE and to rest in Christ. To be free from the slavery of SIN!!John 8:32 :And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free...

    Galations,5:! Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ made us free, and do not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage

    John8:34 Jesus said to them " Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever committs sin is a slave of sin
    35: " a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever" 36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed!"

    Oh but to rest in Christ! it's the security that we have in Christ! The thought of knowing that you belong to the Creator of the universe and no matter what happens you are Gods' child. The worst catastrophy can happen and you can have no fear because you are in the hands of God! Now that is rest and freedom and DELIGHT!!! Praise God!!

    Give your life over to the Lord to the point that the things that make you the happiest are spiritual things. If we do this and all the while lay our petitions at the Father's feet in the name of the Son, our wants and needs will match what God the father will bless us with.

    Great question!!

    For me, to delight myself in the Lord, means to take joy in knowing Him and serving Him with the understanding that even when things don't go my way, as they often don't, He is still sovereign and He is still in control and He always has only the best intentions for me. When I am living my life in accordance to this spiritual truth, the desires of my heart become the desires that God has for me.

    Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
