Delight in the Presence of Lord:


Isaiah 58:14
"Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it."

Here we can see who else can be delight in the presence of Lord:

For those who Seeks the Lord
1 Chronicles 16:10 :"Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD"
As the psalmist says in 63:1 ; "God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is"

For those who Redeem from Captivity
Psalms 14:7 ; "Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad."

For those who Meditate
Psalms 104:34 ;" My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD."
Psalms 34 :8 ;" O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him."
Joshua 1:8 ; "his book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."

For those who Offer Sacrifice
Nehemiah 12:43;" Also that day they offered great sacrifices, and rejoiced: for God had made them rejoice with great joy: the wives also and the children rejoiced: so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard even afar off.
Psalms 51:17; "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise".
For truth we have to sacrifice lot of stuff.

For those who Observe sabath:
Isaiah 58:13; "If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:"
