Delight Yourself in the Lord
“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of his heart.”
Many times we ask God to delight us to make us joyful “Lord I want to be Happy” but the bible says you delight yourself in the Lord. I have the responsibility to delight myself.
In the book of Job 22:22,23 it says if you “receive instructions from his mouth and lay up his words in your mouth; if you return to the almighty and will built up, if you remove injustice far from your tents” then, in Job 22:26 it is written from “Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God.”, Job 22:27 say “you will make your prayer to him and he will hear you.”
So it is very important for me to follow the word of god as Jesus says in the book of John15: 7 “if you abide in me and my words abide in you then, ask whatever your will and it will be given to you.” Again in Matthew 6:33 the lord says “seek first the kingdom of heaven and its righteousness, and rest everything shall be added unto you.”
Therefore you can only delight in the Lord. When you follow his word in obedience then he will give you the desires of his heart.
So let us obey and remain in the Lord.
Faith is substance of unseen things.
“O faithless and twisted generation how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me.”
Once man brought his demon possessed son to the Apostles, but they could not drive the demon out. Jesus said bring the boy to me and e commanded the spirit to leave and it left; on seeing this Apostles had question and they asked Jesus that why we could not cast out the demon.
Jesus said because of your unbelief. The Apostles had seen Jesus said to the Spirit come and possibly they also said the same thing so they were wondering why it dint come out when they said so. They could have said we also have faith but Jesus would tell them if you have faith then, why did it not happen? So what they thought was faith, was not faith.
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast in the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Hebrew 11:1 “Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Even if you dint see it continue to believe to receive it, and that thing it’s yours.
