    Joel,

    Christ is awesome!

    Thanks for reading. This is one of my favorite psalms.

    I wish I could give the one thing that I have no power to give to my friends and loved ones: a delight in the Word of God. I do have faith that the Spirit grants that delight where, when and to whom He desires to give it. For that I praise the Lord, while praying for others.

    I like how you put it:

    “Therefore, the “delight,” of which this psalm speaks, is a free, spontaneous, and joyous pleasure in the Word of God.”

    I confess that reading His Word in the past wasn’t high on my priority list. But when we realize Jesus fulfilled the Law for us, we can delight in His Word in freedom and peace with God, being hidden in Christ. Even when we don’t feel particularly pious. Even when we’re depressed or angry or anxious. We can rest in His Word.

    It’s mind boggling how these Psalms describe Christ. Words don’t do it justice…
