Commentary by Pastor Michael White:

“I delight to do Your will, O my God…” (Ps 40:8). True maturity comes when we delight to do God’s will. Far too many Christians trudge about, feeling constrained by God’s restrictive demands. Yet when we truly understand the Gospel, we understand that God’s covenant with us never restricts us – it frees us! Jesus Christ gives us freedom and life. God gave up His most prized possession – His only Son Jesus Christ – so that we could be united with Him. We have been forever freed from the bonds of sin and death so that we can delight in His will! When we are where God wills, everything we put our hand to will prosper.

Prayer:

Father, help me to delight in Your will! I want to understand the freedom that comes with a relationship with You. I want to understand the Gospel like I’ve never been able to understand it before. Help me to find joy in You and You alone!
