POWER POST FOR THE WEEK
I know you’re busy but here’s your SPIRIT inspired POWER POST guaranteed to help you through the week:
PSALM 37:4 “DELIGHT IN THE LORD AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.”
I have taken this verse literally for some 50 years. For me it’s absolutely true. The directive starts with “delighting in the Lord.” That’s getting to the point where you “DELIGHT” making God the center of your life. How you do that is a lifetime task. But the result is, in a short time after starting, you’ll begin to GET THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART NOW and into the future. What are those deep desires? Not material things necessarily, but WHAT YOU HOPE TO GET from material things. JOY, FULFILLMENT, SATISFACTION, PEACE OF MIND. Those are the true delights. I’ve experienced that for 50 plus years in varying degrees because I’ve taken these words LITERALLY. I wouldn’t want to go back to make many changes.
READ THESE NEXT LINES ONLY IF YOU HAVEN’T BEFORE
I’ve found there is power pent up in the phrases from the Bible. They have been read, repeated aloud and pondered for several thousand years. In hours of need when I want direction, comfort or wisdom and God’s spirit I find these phrases help me feel connected to the millions of people before me who have been inspired by these same words. I feel when I repeat these words I am unlocking the spirit that inspired those original first words. I feel at peace and grateful for any help that comes from above. I send a new phrase and a few sentence commentary once a week. Look for them in the future.
