Tender Hearted Delight

Psalm 37:3-4 … Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

From NetBible Ps 37:4

  • Delight[06026] = to be soft{pliable}, be delicate, be dainty
  • Desires[04862] = request, petition, prayers

*Faith and obedience (v. 3) will bring divine blessing (v. 4).

2 Kings 22:18-19 … Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to enquire of the LORD, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard: Because your heart was tender, and you have humbled yourself before the Lord, when you heard what I spoke against this place . . . I also have heard you, says the Lord.

From NetBible 2Ki 22:19

  • Tender[07401] = to be soft, sensitive, responsive, penitent
  • Humbled[03665] = to be brought into subjection
    * two key references Lev 26:41 & 2 Chron 7:14 indicate that so long as a person, or nation, is arrogant or self sufficient, God can do nothing for them

A humble heart bows in
Tender hearted delight -Ps37:4; Is11:3
Before the Lord
Before the One and Only who is adored. -Ps45:11; 1Co8:6

A sweet incense
A living sacrifice
A fragrant offering
Beautiful, pleasing in His sight. -Eph5:1-2; Ro12:1-2; Ps45:11

Tender hearted delight
Held in His gaze
The apple of His eye  -Ps17:8; Prv7:1-2
Treasured and greatly desired
Lord I am yours and You are mine! -Ps45:11; Is 43:1-4


Delight Yourself in the Lord
The Lord’s Delight
