"For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence." 1 Corinthians 1:25-29 (KJV)

DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD

"Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass." Psalm 37:4-5 (KJV)

Do you know what the Hebrew context of this scripture says? The word 'delight' comes from the Hebrew root word ANAG (Strong's H6026), which means to be soft, be delicate, be dainty, be pampered, be happy, and to take exquisite delight in something.

Many macho men may have a problem with this. LOL. The scripture is saying that we should take pleasure in the LORD so much that we pamper ourselves with Him in the most soft, delicate and dainty way and be happy about it. When we do this God gives us the prayer requests, petitions, or desires of our heart.

The scripture goes on to say we must commit to the LORD. The word 'commit' comes from the Hebrew root GALAL (Strong's H1556), which means to roll, or to roll together. It is the same word translated 'wallowed' in 2 Samuel 20:12 (KJV). It is also translated as 'trusted' in Psalm 22:8 (KJV).

Many people loosely use the slang: "I'm rolling with my crew". The scripture is saying we must "Roll with God" in the sense that we must wallow in Him like we are rolling in something and completely trust (be confident, bold, secure) in Him in everything. I've not had a pampering mud bath as yet but I imagine that is how we should wallow and roll around in God. LOL.


So Psalm 37:4-5 (KJV) is saying that when we "pamper ourselves" in God he gives us what we pray for and when we "roll with Him", He manifests these desires of our heart.

Isn't that something!
