I just looked up the word delight on Bible Gateway. The word is used in the Bible over 100 times. It seems to be fairly evenly split between two uses: God delighting in His humans and His humans delighting in God. To delight is to find joy, extreme satisfaction, great pleasure, reward. I think the Biblical picture of delight is a cycle: God takes great pleasure in giving us great joy as we in turn find our greatest reward in Him.
Here’s one example from Psalm 36.
How priceless is your unfailing love!
Both high and low among men
find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
Heart wounds attack our capability of taking delight in anything. With dull eyes and living-dead spirits we miss opportunities to see blessings and find gratitude. The journey of healing begins with the practice of joy. Slow down. Notice things. Stop. Feel. Appreciate. Express. To find delight in our Father is more urgent than our spiritual and material agendas. It is the stuff of life. Don’t miss it.
