Lent: Day 24
My Delight is in You
My delight is in You On Your word I set my heart You are peace, You are calm for my restless soul You light my way through the dark
I want to know You even more Holiness is my desire Purify, burn in me, come and make me clean You refine me in Your fire
Here I am, open arms Draw me close to Your heart You're my life, You're my refuge My delight, my delight is in You My delight is in You
My delight is in You, Lord You're the treasure I have found You're the rock where I stand I will not be moved All my life is in Your hands
Song of Songs 7:6 How beautiful and pleasant you are, O loved one, with all your delights!
Matthew 13:44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field…”
Why do we exist? I think the best description is this: “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever.” We were made to enjoy Him. Think about that: God chose us, shaped us, designed us to glorify Him. But not simply to do so as created beings but as children of God. We don’t just get to be impressed by Him, we get to know Him. The most intimate and vital relationship we will ever have. God has given Himself to us to be our delight and our great reward.
FATHER draw me closer to You today than I have ever been before. Cause my heart to be overwhelmed with delight for You!
