Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
David discovered a truth and shares it with us: if he finds his life’s delight in the Lord, all his desires are fulfilled. To delight in someone is to find joy in their presence, to welcome their unique qualities and to express pleasure in their company. When we make the Lord the object of our delight, spending time in His presence and reveling in His character, our deepest heart’s desires gradually align themselves with His own. Soon, what we want is what He wants—-and how delighted He is to honor our heart’s desire by keeping us in the center of His will…..and the center of God’s will is the ultimate sweet spot.
When we have a right-standing relationship with God we have a life of freedom, liberty, and delight….you are God’s will. And all your common sense decisions are actually His will for you, unless you sense a feeling of restraint brought on my a check in your spirit. You are then free to make decisions in the light of a perfect and delightful friendship with God, knowing that if your decisions are wrong He will lovingly produce that sense of restraint. Once He does, you must stop immediately -Oswald Chambers
There’s nothing this world can offer that can beat what it feels like to be right in the middle of God’s presence. Moses knew that, and thats why he didn’t even want the promised land with all its glory if God wasn’t with Him.
There’s also nothing like the feeling of being out of His will for our lives. I’ve been at a place where I knew God didn’t want me to be. The spirit rose up in me and said, let’s get out of here. The worse part about hell is being completely away from God. Being away from God in this life is hell on earth.
Being with God is what allows us to escape the fiery furnaces of life without even the smell of smoke on our clothes! Being with God is where armies are defeated, lives are changed and victory is won…..even when it seems all is stacked against us. Being with God is where the anointed power of God rests. Being with God is indeed the ultimate sweet spot.
Love reading your posts, Christy! Now that Christmas is over, hopefully the crud and flu, (yes, we got it) and other things that the devil has managed to “distract” me with….we can get together again. I want to hear about Bella. I must have missed your posts about an adoption? My internet was off and on for almost 2 weeks and I have very limited data on my phone. Hope to see you soon! love ya!
Thank you for the encouragement. Yes, GOD….in HIS truly awesome way….brought us a joy we didn’t know we were missing until she came. Now, I can’t remember what we did before she was here. It seems she always has been. Another glorious bamboozle! Can’t wait to see you. Sorry about the crud. We’ve had it too. Feel better soon dear friend! xoxo
