IF THE LORD DELIGHT IN US
Today is Wednesday. I am looking forward to the day. I have two chapels and then our Mid Week Service this evening and I'm looking forward to each time I have to share God's Word. Tonight I am teaching on the Names of God and again it will be a blessing as God reveals Himself to His people through His names in Scripture. Wow! I'm loving it!
Today in Numbers, I have a truth I want to share with you:
IF THE LORD DELIGHT IN US- In Numbers 14:8, Joshua is speaking to the people. The twelve spies from the land have come back, but ten of them have an evil report. Joshua now speaks up and says: "If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey." In verse ten they wanted to stone Joshua and Caleb for speaking up for God. But what Joshua is saying is such a powerful truth! IF the LORD delight in us.... HE will ..... The KEY is to get the LORD to delight in you! Psalms 37:4 "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Here David reminds us again that if we delight ourselves also in the LORD that HE will give us the desires of our hearts. This means that we act in such a way that God delights in us. Same thought that Joshua had! Notice what Jesus said: John 15:7 "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." Here we see that abiding in Christ and having His words abide in us, pleases Him; and, because it pleases him, we can get our requests answered. The key is to focus on having the LORD delight in us, and we in Him. This is the secret to getting prayers answered and having a blessed life. Let this be your goal today, and everyday!
Blessing be upon you! Pastor Mike Mutchler
