Midweek Message May 18, 2016


This week we pick up Psalm 37 from last week….Delight yourself in The Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4)

Notice the connection between “delight” and “desires:”  Delight in God, tune in to God, align your heart with God’s desires, and then your desires will be the very desires that God delights to satisfy, because they are no longer your/my own selfish desires, but the desires that have come from constant delighting in God, that reflect the values of God – and of the image of God implanted within each of us, that same image that Jesus came to restore to its intended place, our true home.

Aren’t you reminded of the words of Jesus in His Sermon on the Mount:  “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you.”  And these words:  “Ask, seek, knock, for everyone who asks receives; who seeks finds and the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Delight yourself in God, and God will give you the desires of your heart – today, all day, every day!
