Psalm 37:4 NIV: Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
God never created us to be independent of him. He made us to completely depend on him for everything all the days of our sojourn here on earth. This means he wants us in his presence daily as long as we live. Only then can we make progress and our heart desires be granted.
The enemy is aware of this, that is why he keeps you so busy that you hardly find time for your maker. He also ensures that you have the best of excuse including the regular phrase “God understands”. Our God is a faithful God, and his love does not cancel his justice.
We have a responsibility to stay in his presence in order to enjoy the provisions he has for us. We do this through daily prayer and communication with him and also in the study and meditation of the word. The more we know him, the more like him we become. The scripture says God has given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. 2 Peter 1:3
Therefore encourage you to spend time daily with your God in the study of the word and prayer and your life will be better and exciting.
Declare to yourself loud: I will dwell in your presence all the days of my life. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, I receive grace to stay with you daily in the study of your word and prayer. In Jesus Name. Amen.
