Delight Yourself in YAH

We believe in the Lord, and pray to Him especially when we are in trouble. There is nothing wrong with that. But the Teaching in the Bible instructs us to "Take Delight in YAH (Ps. 37.5)," which we do when we seek Him and enjoy His Presence. YAH is always with us, we only have to acknowledge it. The Scriptural passage, "Taste and see that YAH is good (Psalm 34.8)," is often appropriately applied to Holy Communion. But the Psalmist surely was speaking of basking in the Presence of YAH.

Do not confuse taking delight in the YAH with taking delight in religion, dogma, or our church, or even the Bible (in and of itself). However, a big part of our relationship with YAH is learning and accepting the Teaching, which is contained in Holy Scripture. We should in fact immerse ourselves in Sacred Scripture.

I believe if we can try to know YAH this way, it will lighten our burdens. Instead of just praying to YAH when we are in trouble, we can enjoy YAH all the time. It will make our burden lighter. Surely this is what Y'shua means when He says, "take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and my burden light (Matthew 11.29-30)."
