Psalm 37:4, 5

Delight yourself also in the Lord,

And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord,

Trust also in Him,

And He shall bring it to pass.

David calls us to take delight in the Lord and to commit everything we have and do (our "way") to him. But how do we do this? To delight in someone means to experience great pleasure and joy in his or her presence. This can only be when we know that person well. Thus, to delight in the Lord, comes with knowing him. Knowledge of him comes from walking with him in your heart and through the Word. That knowledge will give us delight!

To commit ourselves to the Lord means entrusting everything - our lives, families, jobs, possessions - to his control and guidance. To commit ourselves to the Lord means to trust him, believing that he can care for us better than we can ourselves. We must be willing to wait patiently for him to work out what is best for us.
