THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
An elderly lady was really bragging about the new pastor in
Someone asked, "What color are his eyes?"
She said, "I don't really know. When he prays, he closes
his eyes. And when he preaches, I close mine."
Delight thyself also in the LORD;
and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Light from the WORD.
In this verse, REAL LIFE is described for the believer:
DELIGHT in the Lord!
It is surprising to unbelievers, and sometimes surprising to
But REAL LIFE is finding joy and fulfillment in the Lord.
Those who are without Christ, and those who are "part-time"
Christians usually refer to faith as being service, duty, or necessity.
Very rarely do they refer to faith as fullness and happiness.
True faith brings delight to the soul.
And delight is expressed in true faith.
Christians can have greater happiness if we delight ourselves

When we delight ourselves in the Lord,
then His desires become our desires.
And He gives us the true desires of our heart:
to be in genuine fellowship with Him.
In your life today, make Christ your DELIGHT!
