River of Delights

7 How priceless is your unfailing love!
Both high and low among men
find refuge in the shadow of your wings.

8 They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;

in your light we see light.
Psalm 36:7-9, English Standard Version

River of Delights

Delights. Now there is a word we like! Our culture is obsessed with seeking anything that gives delight. But, though people may attain momentary joy, it does not last. New things are continually needed to feast their thirst for happiness. Could it be that they are looking in the wrong place?

Many things delight us and make us happy, but true happiness only comes from our Lord God, who gives us drink from His river of delights. How often do we take that for granted? How often do we face the drudgery of each day with a gloomy outlook on life? No wonder the world is not drawn to Christ as we vocalize the same things they do day after day. What difference do they see in our lives because we are Christians?

Look at the things that are granted to we Christians. We not only drink from the River of Delights, but we also feast on the abundance of God's house. And, in Christ we find the fountain of life. Then, as verse 9 continues, it says, For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

So, as you drink today from God's River of Delights, pray that the light of God may be reflected in you, that others may see your light and glorify God in Heaven.

God Bless You,
Linda
