“Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.” (Psalm 97:11)
Hello friend! Today we will meditate on the promise word which is in Psalm 97:11. This verse says “Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.” Yes my friend, the Lord delights in those who do good deeds and walk according to his word. His heart is filled with so much joy seeing his people doing good deeds and obeying his commands.
We see how the Lord blesses the righteous. They are able to enjoy God’s blessings and God blesses them abundantly. This is what The Bible says in Psalm 147:11. “The LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” What happens when you delight in the Lord and walk according to his word? It says in Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Yes, friend God will give the desires of your heart. Whatever you are longing for and whatever blessing you are waiting for, God will bless you in abundance because you do his will and obey his commands. No matter what people say, no matter how hard it is, no matter how people look at you or speak about you, when you stay strong, delight in him, and be righteous in his eyes, the Lord is filled with joy and blesses you with the desires of your heart. So, take delight in God my friend and he will smile upon you and fill your life with joy. You will be shining like a star.
My loving Heavenly Father,
Thank you for today’s promise. Father, give me the grace and help me to do only what is righteous and walk according to your word. Let me always take delight in you, fulfill your will each day, and obey your commands.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
