The Law of Delight

Comfort – it is something that all people love, amen?!! Things that comfort us in good ways is good and in a world that can provide lots of “comforts,” some of them can leave a not so good after taste!!! Oh, live and learn we do sometimes, but our Father desires to give to us as His kids comfort without the harshness of lived out reality of world let downs, hence He has given us truth so that we can know the best source of all comfort and that is Jesus!!! King David knew what it was like to have the comfort of our Father when he wrote:

“May your unfailing love be my comfort,

according to your promise to

your servant.

Let your compassion come to

me that I may live,

for your law is my delight.”

Psalm 119: 76-18 NIV

King David understood that his true “delight” in life was the love that our Father revealed to Him through His Words spoken to him.  The Words that our Father spoke to King David He also speaks to us as His kids of faith as well. His written Word (the Bible) says this about how our Father loves us through our faith in what He did on the cross to be our Savior, giving us a forever inheritance as His royal children:

  • “For God so love the world that He gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

  • Nothing in all creation is able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
  • God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
  • Cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
  • See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. 1 John 3:1
  • I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Proverbs 8:17
  • God IS love. 1 John 4:8

“For the Lord takes delight in His people.”

Psalm 149:4

“What a person desires is unfailing love. Proverbs 19:22 The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”

Jeremiah 31:3

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17

Do you see it, dear one?!! What each of our hearts desire is for unfailing love.  That is our ultimate comfort in all of life and the source of that is Jesus who loves us in just that way – with unfailing love!!! He delights in us as His kids of faith!!! It’s the “law of delight” – an absolute that doesn’t change!!! It is what we need to first and foremost remember always so that our hearts are comforted and secured in all of life!!! Oh there is nothing that compares to the sweet love of Jesus!!! It is a powerful love beyond all love as this song says here. “Never will He leave us, never will He forsake us!!!” Rest in His love for you, precious one!!! He is for YOU and He is for me, too!!!
