LIVING IN GOD'S HEART (5)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Living in God's heart 

a) The Bible says to delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Many people think that this is a way to get God to give you what you want. I believe that the meaning is deeper than that here is the passage. 

Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. (Psalms 37:4-6)  

b) If you delight yourself in the Lord He then is the desire of your heart, He is the one you long for, He is the reward you seek. What can be greater than the very presence of God?  

In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalms 16:11)

c) We believe that as we delight ourselves in the Lord He will change our desires and give us His desires, (He shall give you the desires of your heart). As we commit our way toward the Lord He will bring us into His righteousness. The Lord can change what we love and hate so that we now love and hate what He loves and hates.

d) God’s word promises that if we deeply desire His righteousness He will fill us with it.  

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. (Matthew 5:6)   

e) The key is your desire, how much do you desire God’s righteousness? Are you willing to seek the Lord until He rains righteousness upon you?  

Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you. (Hosea 10:12)


The End ...
