Psalm 1:2 says, “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.” What we dwell on in our mind, affects our heart. Jeremiah 15:16 says, “Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name.”
Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” How much time do you spend drinking from the river of His pleasures? According to David that is where we will find satisfaction.
Psalm 36:8-9 says, “They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.”
Psalm 63:5 says, “My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.” Jeremiah rejoiced because he spent time eating and digesting God’s word.
I love Psalm 103:5. It is part of my prayer of thanksgiving before I eat. It says, “Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” It isn’t talking about food, but that is the application I make.
What our hearts delight in comes out of our mouths. Psalm 119:92 says, “Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction.” This is my testimony with an exclamation mark. Is it yours?
Happy Thanksgiving ~ may your heart be filled and overflowing today with thanksgiving for all that the Lord has done through His death on the cross ~ for you
