Winning Wisdom: Delight Yourself In God

Topic: Delight Yourself In God [Tuesday, 16th May 2017]

Then you will take delight in the Almighty and look up to God. Job 22:26

One of the cardinal points of Christianity is to always look up to God. God wants us to be totally dependent on Him, trust in His will for us, and follow the path that He is leading us through. But our focus on God should not be one from a point of compulsion but one of pure delight and love for God. One thing God will never take away from man his is free will to choose his path in life.

Delight connotes joy and something that you derive pleasure in. We all know that humans will naturally gravitate towards the things that give them joy, and what they derive pleasure from. Delight in the Lord. Let your joy and pleasure come from Him. The Lord is the fountain of joy and everyone who looks up to Him will always find pleasure, because their needs will be met and they will be fulfilled in Him. Scriptures say "you will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows to him" (Job 22:27).

When you delight yourself in the Lord, success is assured. I have never seen any man who has taken to the Lord wholeheartedly and end up failing in life. You can't fail, because failure is not consistent with you. Scriptures say "you will succeed in whatever you choose to do, and light will shine on the road ahead of you" (Job 22:28). ANYTHING you choose to do, you will succeed in it. It doesn't matter if that is your area of competence, but as you delight yourself in the Lord, He supplies grace and the necessary human help to see to your success. Delight yourself in the Lord today. Let Him alone be the one you derive pleasure from.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Father, You are my all in all. In You my life finds its bearing and meaning. You are my delight. In You I find joy and derive pleasure. I am totally submissive to Your will and way, as You lead me to the path of progress and success, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
