Delight and take joy in the Lord for who He is!
The greatest thing I have found in developing a time to study out the word and seek revelation on it from God is that it has ignited a joy within.
Its like when your in love and you just cannot wait to hear their voice an eager anticipation of what will they say next.
The word of God in the written forn if the Bible is Gods voice to us. Everytime we open it, it is Him speaking to us.
Delight yourself in the Lord ; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4 NASB
Taking joy in God for who He is, is something I have had to shift within myself to learn. I had seen God as like a genie in a bottle pray and your requests are granted.
Not the case with God. He wants me to pray to him for who he is, give thanks to Him for His goodness. Praise Him and Worship Him in spirit and in truth. God knew when I prayed to him it was not in spirit and in truth it was in self will and flesh.
When God didnt answer those prayers I began to not trust in him. When all the while He knew my heart condition and knew that if He answered somethings out of His timing that He wouldn’t be glorified.
He has wanted me to learn to grow an initimate relationship with Him. With where I am at Reformation Developmental Center Pastored by Juanita Gibbs she has showed how to study and break down the word.
She has showed how to meditate and take it deeper into our soul. For the word of God as she taugh is the only sword that can touch the soul. It is in that what can bring true change to a person and manifest the goodness of God in our life by delighting in His word.
