the secret chamber
“His delight”. What is delight? It’s joy, right? Something that makes you really glad, that sparks you with pleasure, that makes you feel glad to be living, and that you have something to live for.
What does it mean to meditate? I’m not talking about the funny things people do these days to try to connect with their inner being. That’s not what this Psalm means. It’s all about time alone with Jesus in the secret place of your heart, the inner room of your soul, where all those private thoughts and feelings are kept.
Matthew 6:6— But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
There is a place in the soul of each person for private thought, and Jesus wants you to let Him in that room. He wants to sit down with you and chat things over. So get quiet and enter this quiet zone, this place of private thoughts, where you hunger after truth and want to be loved; where you wish for the pain of the troubles of your heart to stop. Then you let Jesus speak to you.
It really is like a room. Can you imagine a room that is within your mind and heart, the place your spirit lives? It’s not confined to the physical size of your body. Your spirit’s special room for communing with your Lord is as big as you imagine it to be. It could be a large banquet hall with streamers and chandeliers and a huge table with every type of food you could imagine for you to fill your dish. Perhaps the room of your soul is a private study room. You invite the Lord of your life in, and there is a cozy fireplace, a table and a lamp, and the Guest of Honor can sit beside you and chat with you.

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.“
“What seems impossible is possible through the keys. What seems unattainable is attainable through the keys. What seems a defeat can be turned into a victory through the keys.”
