Delight Thyself in the Lord

Delight Thyself in the Lord
“Delight thyself in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalms 37:4

What a beautiful promise this scripture is! But, you may be surprised at what it means, and how it works.

1. Delight Yourself in the Lord
2. He shall Give Thee the Desires of Thine Heart

Delight Yourself in the Lord
To receive the desires of our heart, we must first delight ourselves in the Lord. Delighting ourselves is a two-fold action. The first part is the part we all know and love: to take abundant joy in the Lord.
The second part is actually DE-lighting yourself in the Lord. That means to take the spotlight off of ourselves, and put it on the Lord. It’s a focus shift. Instead of living to please ourselves, we live to please the Lord. We seek Him and His will above our own.

He Shall Give Thee the Desires of Thine Heart
This part is a two-fold action on God’s part. When you are delighting yourself in the Lord and taking the focus off of yourself, then He shall (shall is a promise) give thee the desires of thine heart.
Our God is the Father of the cattle on a thousand hills. He constantly promises to provide for our physical needs. But, this scriptures isn’t talking about needs - it’s talking about desires!
What is it your heart truly desires? Delight thyself in the Lord and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

But, wait…
It may not be what you think. Yes, it could certainly be that “thing” your heart is longing for, but it could also be the reshaping of your heart's desires, too. Part of that promise is not only that God shall give you the desires of your heart, but that God will be the one to put the desires on your heart. In other words, when you are delighting yourself in the Lord, you might just find that what your heart desires most gets reshaped.

For, when you seek God above all else, and your soul delights in Him and His will, then you're doing God’s will, God’s way, and…

…He opens the Heavens and pours out a blessing you cannot contain.

The World is Troubled - the only #lion we should be talking about...

The World is troubled, big time; everywhere you turn you see how people accept to live with their own truth, interpretation and churches became social clubs without anyone paying attention.

Any media will feed you with what they want for you to hear and not what's real in the world anymore. 

I'll be talking about the story of a lion - the Biblical LION -  #cecilthelion #lion #lionhunting

ONE THING WILL NEVER CHANGE - It was, it is & it will always be! 

I really had to look up this word in the dictionary, here is the definition 

Verb (used without object)

to be widespread or current; exist everywhere or generally:
Silence prevailed along the funeral route.
to appear or occur as the more important or frequent feature or element; predominate:
Green tints prevail in the upholstery.
to be or prove superior in strength, power, or influence (usually followed by over):
They prevailed over their enemies in the battle.

I could tell you the story but when you read it yourself, the power is there, it doesn't need translation or interpretation, it's in English and it's a straight forward story.


Daniel 6King James Version (KJV)

1. It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.
Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.
Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
11 Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
12 Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king's decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
13 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.
14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
15 Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.
16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
17 And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.
18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.
20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
23 Then was the king exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.
24 And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.
25 Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.
26 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.
27 He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
28 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

The ONLY God you have to fear is the one that gave his only begotten Son to die for us.
In the book of John 3 you find everything you need to know about the salvation plan.

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
James 1:22 KJV

Amen and Amen!
