David calls us to take delight in the Lord and to commit everything we have and do to Him. To delight in someone means to experience great pleasure and joy in his or her presence. To delight in the Lord, we must know Him better through the disciplines of reading His Word and regular prayer. To commit ourselves to the Lord means entrusting everything to His control and guidance, believing that He can care for us better than we can ourselves. Even though it is hard, we have to wait patiently for Him to work out what is best for us.
