I thing we find in
Psa 19:8 The orders of יהוה are straight, rejoicing the heart; The command of יהוה is clear, enlightening the eyes;
If we take this together with the words of the previous verse about guarding the Torah something wonderful takes place in our hearts.  They become a joy unspeakable to us as He then begins to show Himself faithful and true to His word.  In our household as we let go of those things the world holds dear to their hearts (I am speaking of their holidays) and as we delve deeper into the celebration of His Holy days and feasts and the instructions of Elohim there is so much more of a realization that what we are doing is more joyful and life changing. 
I would suggest if you really want to know the heart of Abba, if you really want to understand His word and what He desires for your life start by changing the day you worship Him.  Start by starting to honor the day He Himself set aside for rest.  It will truly change your life.  Let me leave you with these couple of verses that helped to change my life
Psa 37:4 And delight yourself in יהוה, And let Him give you the desires of your heart.
My question with this verse was "what does it mean to delight yourself in Yahweh?
As Scripture interprets Scripture I found the answer here:
Isa 58:13 "If you do turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My set-apart day, and shall call the Sabbath ‘a delight,’ the set-apart day of יהוה ‘esteemed,’ and shall esteem it, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words,
Isa 58:14 then you shall delight yourself in יהוה. And I shall cause you to ride on the heights of the earth, and feed you with the inheritance of Yaʽaqoḇ your father. For the mouth of יהוה has spoken!"
