More Than All in Him I Find

Lord, fill me with Your fulness today.

"In Christ you have been brought to fullness." 
Colossians 2:10 NIV 

"To know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, 
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." 
Ephesians 3:19 ESV

The problem is that we treat "Delight yourself in the Lord" like a tool. 
Like, "Okay, I've done that. Why _____?" 
As though "Delight yourself in the Lord" is a quick little turn of the key, 
and you get what you want. It isn't like that. 
Delighting yourself in the Lord is an all-consuming, day-by-day quest 
to bring all of our desires into that one great desire, so that He does satisfy. 
—John Piper
