DELIGHT IN THE LORD!
Delight In The Lord – I usually do not write a message during weekends but this morning these words keeps ringing in my ears:-
“When you delight in me, I will meet your every need and desire”.
So I look up this familiar scripture in Psalms 37. Let’s read from verse 3-5:-
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
In this verse, the Lord wants us to trust Him and when we do, He knows that we will do all the good things. Doing them, our fruit is that we get to dwell in His secret place, where His provision abounds.
Amen, what a blessing to trust and do good!
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Yes this is the word for the day! We first delight in Him, in every circumstance and situation. Things we do, praise Him in the morning, praise Him in the night and we start seeing things turn around favouring us. We are in the best place in the queue, we get the best bargains and everything seems so convenient whereas for others they get inconvenience all the time!
What a blessing to be in such a situation where everything shines so brightly!
Let me share some experiences. Everyday going to work and going home, I always, most times, had the traffic light appearing ‘green’ for me to cross, without having to stand waiting like others. It is the convenience given by the Lord! Another time, I received a ticket notice for wrongful parking. I shared this before. I was having dinner during the weekend and I parked my car in the usual place, just like others. When I returned I found a ticket and I knew the parking Officer was there. Within the week, I received a summons with a fine of $70.00. I was wrong and so I prayed and repented. Then a few days later, they sent me a letter to say the fine had been withdrawn with a reminder to be more careful when parking.
Yes that’s the favour of God operating when we are pleasing to the Lord!
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Wow, this verse in this Psalms, promises our success when we commit everything to Him, allowing Him to organize and plan our success.
Truly, let’s get excited! Let’s start Praising Him and see Him meeting the desires of our hearts!
