How you delight in the LORD.

"Find your delight in the LORD who will give you your heart's desire." (Psalm 37: 4).

Our Bible verse for today is taken from the Responsorial Psalm from the Liturgy of Friday in the 22nd Week of Ordinary Time.

Before we tackle how we can find our delight in the Lord, we want to know what "delight" means. The dictionary defines "delight" by example thus: "to make (someone) very happy : to give (someone) great pleasure or satisfaction."

We can find our delight in the Lord by being happy in the Lord. We can enjoy friendship with God. Do you enjoy serving the Lord? I see here the idea of companionship. Before the Fall, God and Adam enjoyed a walk together in Paradise. Moses enjoyed friendship with God and talked with God as one friend to another.

Mary sings: "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior." (Luke 1: 46 - 47).

Do you enjoy praying, reading the Bible? These are key activities that cement friendship with God. Do you like hanging out in Churches? The Sanctuary is a place where the presence of God is felt.

"Delight yourself in the Lord,
And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart." (Psalm 37: 4 AMP).

Constantly seek your happiness in the Lord, and the Lord promises to give you your heart's desire.

Not many people appear to be looking for Jesus.

"The people were looking for him." [Jesus] (Luke 4: 42).

Why was everyone looking for Jesus? Because He feeds them, heals them and teaches them? Much more than that. They are irresistibly drawn to Jesus as iron particles are drawn to a magnet. Historians say that Rome from its earliest history as the See of St Peter attracts tourists. Spiritual gurus say that holiness draws people to the holy one in the same manner.

Today, not many people appear to be attracted to Jesus. On the surface, they appear to be more attracted to money, pleasure, leisure, spots. This is just on the surface. St Augustine who is great with words summarized the whole of the Bible on human longing thus: "O God, thou hast made us for Thyself and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee."

How do we know that St Augustine is correct? Today it is: Addiction. Addiction. Addiction. Nothing will ever satisfy the heart of man except God who stamped His DNA on man when He created Adam.

My friend, where do you fit into this picture? Jesus says:
"I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent." (Luke 4: 43).

Jesus has turned over this great Enterprise of evangelization to you and me.
"For we are co-workers in God's service; you are God's field, God's building." (1 Corinthians 3: 9).

"Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?'
"Because no one has hired us,' they answered.
"He said to them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard." (Matthew 20: 6 - 7).

You are hired.

Congratulations My good and faithful servant.

"Jesus told his disciples this parable:
"A man going on a journey called in his servants and entrusted his possessions to them.
To one he gave five talents; to another, two; to a third, one—to each according to his ability." (Matthew 25: 14 - 15).

Have you ever met a human being with zero gift of time, talent or treasure? No! God gives to each human being a gift of some time, talent or treasure "each according to his ability." That is, each according to his predestined purpose.

No matter how long it takes the Master to come, be assured that there will be settling of accounts sooner or later.
"After a long time the master of those servants came back and settled accounts with them."
(Matthew 25: 19).

Those servants who have made good yields on the investment will be congratulated and promoted. Losers will be severely reprimanded and punished.
"Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master's joy." (Matthew 25: 21).

To be faithful is to be steadfast, constant in a task. Mary is faithful to prayer. Mother St Teresa of Kolkata says that God does not expect us to be successful but expects us to be faithful.

"Consider your own calling, brothers and sisters." (1 Corinthians 1: 26).
Who are you before the Master employed you? Never forget why you were chosen, called and anointed.

Although we started off being nobodies and having nothing, we have been richly endowed, resourced and placed in good positions to yield rich harvest for our Master.

Why is His word so powerful?

"What is there about his word?" (Luke 4: 36).

The surprised people of Capernaum asked after Jesus cast out an evil spirit with one word. The answer to their question is simple. What is there about the word of Jesus? It is the word of God. God is inside His word.

Who else felt the power of this word?
"The centurion replied, "Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed." (Matthew 8: 8).

Have you ever asked Jesus to say one word and heal any area of your life?

"For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out." (Luke 4: 36).

A father has authority over his children. He exercises this authority through his words. Does the word of God have authority over you?

"Martha had a sister named Mary. Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to all He said." (Luke 10: 39). Mary wanted the words of Jesus to have authority over her. So she listened attentively to every word of Jesus. (Cf Luke 4: 32).
You can do the same.

One of the most creative words in the Bible is Mercy. The word "mercy" occurs 276 times in the Bible. This is a magic word that the Heart of God cannot resist. Everyone that approaches Jesus in the Gospel and pleads for mercy receives mercy instantly. Listen to the number of times "mercy" is used in Holy Mass. We hit God at His softest spot. How many times do you use mercy in your prayers?

Including the very words of God makes our prayers more effective.

"Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I cry to you all the day long.
O Lord, you are good and forgiving,
full of mercy to all who call to you." (Psalm 86: 3,5).

"The LORD is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The LORD is good to all and compassionate toward all his works." (Psalm 145: 8 - 9).

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us and the whole world.

I do not know you, madam.

"Amen, I say to you, I do not know you." (Matthew 25: 12).

These are the words of the bridegroom [Jesus] to the Five Foolish Virgins. God forbid that anyone of us will hear this sharpest of rebukes on the Last Day. Yet the Foolish Virgins behaved very foolishly. They were duly warned. Be prepared. The Bridegroom has a reputation for being delayed. Expect this. They failed to heed the warning.

Here is another warning:
"Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father." (Matthew 10: 32 - 33).

Those who are perishing call such warnings foolishness but to us who are being saved it is the wisdom and mercy of God. (Cf 1 Corinthians 1: 18).

"Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." (John 18: 37).
Do you belong to the truth? Do you recognize the voice of the Good Shepherd?

"Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour." (Matthew 25: 13).
