Yet they seek Me day by day and delight to know My ways, As a nation that has done righteousness And has not forsaken the ordinance of their God. They ask Me for just decisions, They delight in the nearness of God. Isaiah 58:2 NASB
Those were the days my friend. The days of seeking God’s desire and will. Bowing before Him in prayer seeking direction in decisions in our lives and our churches. Delighting to know His ways, to know Him intimately.
🌹Are we still delighting in the nearness of God? Are you near to God?
I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart.” — Psalm 40:8
I found this verse to be “delight”ful. After reading Psalm 37:4 the other day, “delight in the Lord” and now reading this — transformation comes in our lives through our Lord. Through His Word. Through obedience to His law (Him).
Hide God’s Word in your heart. You will delight in Him and His will. That’s a delight full life. (Could not pass this one up: obedience brings about de Light full life). Have a blessed day.
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:10
Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. — Psalm 37:4-5
Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it. — Deuteronomy 10:14
To God be the glory!
God is our Supplier. He supplies all our needs according to His riches — He owns cattle on a thousand hills — to Him belong heaven and earth and all that is in it. Is there anything you need that He cannot supply? The Bible says “no”.
Sometimes though, we want. Does God give us our wants? Sometimes . . .
My husband and I are on a fixed income due to my not working so I can care for my Mom. My daughter is getting married and the plan was for a very simple wedding. Bride, groom, and two witnesses with my husband doing the ceremony. Well, my Mom and I are here now to celebrate this covenant marriage which means more family members wanting to be present and as word gets out more and more want to be a part.
Back to finances. I desire to make my daughter’s special day a precious memory and so to prayer I went.
Bottom line — God has supplied what is needed to make it a special event financially. I did a little investigating as to how much supplies would be and the store I went to has all wedding paraphernalia at 50% off. Is my God amazing or what?!!!! I delight myself in the Lord and He gives me the desires of my heart. Be clear that the desire of our heart is really the desire of God’s heart made manifest through us. Just as we give special treats to those we love, God sometimes gives us special treats too.
I commit my way to You my Lord and trust in You. Thank You for fulfilling this desire of my heart. To You Lord God be the glory!
