“I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” Psalms 40:8
We are living in a thrill-seeking generation. We can see that just by observing the rides that are added to amusement parks each year. We can see it in the movies that are produced and in the special effects that are a part of them. And believe it or not, David was also a thrill-seeker. But as we would expect, David had an entirely different picture of what “thrill-seeking” meant. To David, his heart was thrilled as he was able to perform God’s will in his daily life. Living as God wanted him to, accomplishing what God had designed for him to accomplish, is what delighted David’s soul. Fulfilling God’s purpose for his life is what brought excitement to David and is what made life worth living to him. And if you know the Lord, God has a design for your life as well. God has a plan for you, a perfect plan that, if it is followed, will accomplish exactly what God has designed for you to accomplish. And you will find that, as you follow His will, you will experience a sense of fulfillment that can not be found anywhere else. There is no greater joy, no greater thrill, than knowing that we are walking in a way that pleases the Creator of the universe. May we find delight in walking in the way of the Master!
