DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORD
MAIN TEXT: MARK 12:30 – Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
Psalm 37:4 – Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Delighting in the Lord gives us the desire to walk in God’s ways all the time. How can one delight in the Lord? Trust in the Lord with all your heart- Proverbs 3:5, seek God with all your heart – Jeremiah 29:13. Only a burning desire to please God will keep you from losing your way or getting swallowed up by temporal things that make no impart in the light of eternity.
When pleasing God becomes the motive for our service, serving God and other people becomes a joy and satisfaction. Service to God becomes easy and a part of our living. Another way to delight in the Lord is to find pleasure in Him. Do you know that delighting in God helps to maintain the position of faith that overcomes?
To delight in the Lord, you must know him and to know him, you must engage in consistent prayer and bible studying. Allow God to rekindle your desire to be all that He wants you to be. When you delight in the Lord, a desire to be close to him will be birthed in you. As we come close, our desires begin to align with God’s will for our lives
DELIGHTING IN THE LORD MAKES THE WAY FOR US WITHOUT STRUGGLES
