Delight in the Lord

Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4  ESV

Delighting in the Lord is holding a positive frame of mind toward everything God is, everything God does, and everything God commands.  Only one who approaches God with this frame of mind can ask what he will and see it done for him.

His mind will be in harmony with God’s mind.

His heart will be in tune with God’s heart.

He will do whatever God asks in response.

This one will be heard in the courts of Heaven.

This one will see Heaven released on Earth.

Answered prayer is one of the benefits of living in the Reign.


How Do We Process This?

A horrific tornado tore through the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, Oklahoma, on the afternoon of May 20th.  The devastation was shocking to say the least.  Other communities have also been the targets of storms of varying degrees of intensity in recent days.  In light of these events, I thought it might be good to re-post an entry originally posted on December 18th, 2012, to help remind us how we as Kingdom people are to process these events.
