Ps 37:4-Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
There’s a place where we can go, a vacation of sorts, to forget about whats going on in our lives and bask in the peace of His presence. It costs us nothing, yet it cost Him everything. The equivalent of an all expense paid cruise to an island getaway. It’s there we can give attention to the faithfulness of the Lord. Where our hearts are made tender to receive His mercies.
Better than any vacation memories are the times spent in His presence, the secret place of the most High. In the most trying moments when life overwhelms you with deadlines, close your eyes, step away and focus on Him. Delight yourself in Him. Not for what He can do for you, but what you can bring to Him. Ps 100:4b says, “Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”
Father, I praise you for your goodness! You meet all my needs according to YOUR riches, not mine. Every step I take is ordered. There are no mis-step with You! You never leave me nor forsake me. You know my name and you answer me in time of trouble. You’re my rock, my strong tower, my refuge, my fortress and I trust in You. I bless Your holy name.
I’m acutely aware of You, even though I’ve never seen You, I know Your voice. You always look for ways to bless me, even when I feel I don’t deserve it. You anticipate my desires, even the desires unspoken. You know my heart and You hear my thoughts. My heart belongs to You. Everyday, you bring me peace and satisfy me with food that causes me to grow stronger and younger. You’re such an awesome and wonderful friend, one that stays closer than any other. I’m forever grateful to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
