Psalm 37:4, NIV: Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give
you the desires of your heart.
I sure love a good cup of coffee. I delight in having a fresh cup of coffee to
start each day. But far greater than the coffee I enjoy is my delight in the
morning times I get to spend time with God. There is nothing in the world like
the company of the Lord. His presence is warm, peaceful and rich. In the
stillness, His words are like wonderful realizations that bring newness to the
new day. I’m reminded of an old hymn, “In the Garden.” It’s one of my favorites.
“…And He walks with me, and He talks with me, and He tells me I am His own; and
the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known.” There is no
greater joy for us than that which we find in fellowship with Him.
