Psalms 37:4

4 Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

I have been meditating on this verse of scripture for some times. My question has been, "What does "delight yourself in the Lord" look like?

Websters puts it like this:
1 : a high degree of gratification : joy; also : extreme satisfaction
2 : something that gives great pleasure
3 archaic : the power of affording pleasure

Life Application Bible says, "The knowledge of God's great love for us will indeed give us delight. It is great pleasure and joy in His Presence."

Do I take great pleasure and joy in God's presence? Am I joyful and do I have extreme satisfaction.

What is your definition of "delight"? Do we expect God to give us the desire of our heart, ie answer our prayers unless we are delighting in Him.?

What do you think?

Can't wait for Government Health Care

-----(I'm not sure about these Numbers but I wouldn't doubt it)

A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800
gallons of gas a year.

A vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480
gallons a year.

So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction will reduce US
gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.

They claim 700,000 vehicles so that's 224 million gallons saved per

That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.

5 million barrels is about 5 hours worth of US consumption.

More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $70 per barrel costs
about $350 million dollars

So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $350

We spent $8.57 for every dollar saved.

How good a deal was that ???

They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!
