The Desires of Your Heart

 

Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of your life, and He will provide for you what you desire the most. 

psalms 37:4

Today you will have the desires of your heart, for you are delighting yourself in the Lord! Everywhere you turn, you see what He has done for you! The words you speak are words of truth and joy, for He is overflowing within your heart. Even if obstacles come your way, delight still dances in your soul, for when He is the root of delight, He is the driving desire. 

Every gift that comes your way is His generous provison. His love lavishes you in His prosperity. 

Peace, joy, hope, faith, kindness, strength, and wonder.

To be deeply rooted in God, to truly delight in His presence everyday of your life, is a lifestyle. In that lifestyle, He moves within us, redeems, restores, and renews us. He changes our desires to be His desires. A once selfish life becomes a God-pleasure life, full and delightful on the inside. 

Eternal.

He provides what you desire most. He loves you. Accepts you. Knows you. And, He will never leave you.

This is delight.

Identified

 

God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by grace that you have been saved!) For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-6

Jesus has already given you a name. He has chosen you to be His own. He has lifted you up to sit with Him in heavenly places, and placed authority upon you. He has given you dominion over all the earth, and called you out to rule as a Queen and a King. He has molded you with His very own heart, and washed you with His grace and mercy. 

You are identified as His own!

Privileged, loved, and honored.

You have been given the ability to walk in a supernatural life, with the keys to the Kingdom in your hands. He has engraved your name in His Hands. The relationship you have with Him is forever! He infuses you with truth as you listen to the Words He speaks to you. He covers you with His protection, and reminds you to have courage. He sings over you to comfort you.

Let today be your day to know Who you are in Jesus, be solid in your roots and do not sway.

Joy

I'm whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I'm singing your song, High God. Psalms 9:2

God is a God of joy, and today is the day to belong to His joy. Let it be deep within your heart. Let it be your experience today. He is singing over you. He wants to dance with you! Go ahead, whistle, laugh, and jump for joy, HE IS!

He is the Creator of good things, and He wants you to be happy. He wants to give you good things and He wants you to have a joyful day. He wants to engage in joyfulness with you. He wants to bring joy into your life and root it deeply within you. This is Who He is. 

He is Love, and Love sprouts Joy.

Joy is a fruit of the Spirit; the fruit of the Spirit is characteristic of God. It describes His behaivor towards you. When His Spirit lives within you, then His fruit also describes your behaivor toward Him and others. It is good.

There is power in His Spirit and so much love. My life has changed, I used to think God was angry and unkind. But, now I have seen His kindness and understood His compassion towards me, and felt His grace. He has shown me Who He is, and lifted me unto Himself.  

Today is the day to sing to God, my High and Holy God!

Spirit Power

 

 A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.

Romans 8:2

 It's a New Year, many of us are ready to step into something different. It's time to stretch and grow in new directions. Reach up, reach out, for the Power of God is surrounding you. He has given you His authority to be free! 

What do you really want to do this year? How will you shine? His Power is within you, how will you let Him reveal it to others? His mercy is your Power, His grace is your power, His love is your power. 

His Spirit is fire within you!

His Spirit is working within me and giving me clarity everyday. He is my voice. The calling that I have known for a very long time is becoming clearer to me. Spiritual muscles are stronger, and roots are deeper. His mercy flows over me like a flood of warmth, and I know He loves me.
