Pastor Tommy Devotional: Delight in the Lord Jesus!

Delight yourself also in the Lord; and he shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noon-day. (Psalm 37:4-6)

Pastor Tommy reminds us of the most wondrous gift any Christian can have: “Delight in the Lord Jesus!”

“The Psalms,” he said, “help us delight in the ultimate King of the universe!”

Zoar Strict Baptist Chapel in the hamlet of Lower Dicker in the English county of East Sussex. Founded in 1837.

Similarly, more than 150 years ago, Pastor Joseph Charles Philpot, preaching at Zoar Chapel, reminded his congregation of the close and intimate connection between the humbling teachings of God in the heart and our delighting ourselves in him.

Take time to read these Psalms. Turn the words into prayers of delight. We can do this because he has forgiven our sins and because he has given us eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ.
