"Same way, delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart" (Psalm 37:4)
COMPLEMENTARY passage: Exodus 17: 8-16; Psalm 37:1-40
When we've longed to have something, and succeed, as we are glad! As well, God offers us to respond to the desires of our heart. He wants to see us happy and this gives us the formula that will never fail: "Delight yourself in the Lord". Delight in the Lord means that we seek his presence, which fills us with joy and pleasure, safety and confidence. Even in the midst of problems and difficulties, limitations and challenges, we are confident that our true father, offers to help us by giving us what he knows we need to be happy; It takes all our fears and doubts and tells us: "fear not, I am here". What sweet calm, confident expectations, what a profound relief!
This was what characterized a great man of faith, he learned that while I had hands on top, his gaze would necessarily be directed upwards, the creator, the one who came from your help. I am referring to Moses, who in their journey through the desert, leading to the people of Israel into the promised land, was attacked by the Amalekites, a warrior tribe inhabitant of the desert. Rather than fret and despair, thinking that God had left it alone, he did what all of us should do if a situation which us escapes from the hands .
Sent his best men to the battle, as he was getting into a hill to find the one that could deliver them from the war, whereas, Israel was not a warrior people and they were ready to defend itself militarily. However, Moses had learned to know a God who does not act according to human logic or that is subject to any limitations. He had from Salvador, Guider, a powerful God who delights having mercy on the weak that recognizing its disadvantages, seek him and expect confident in him. As expected, Israel defeated Amalek in a prodigious manner. The obstacle had been removed, but the education was registered forever.While the people of Israel kept his heart yielded to the Lord and his hands extended to him, God would take care of them and defend them. If Israel away from their Savior and his hands fell by fatigue, discouragement or indifference, Dios already not fight for them; they would be at the expense of themselves and would be completely defeated.
When we learn to delight in the Lord, we have easy "entrust you our way, rest in him" (Psalm 37:4-7). When leaving the Lord to live your life in and through us, he runs his will in the same way. This is the privilege of larger, let God to show us his plan for our life and then, let Christ to carry it out in the perfect way as only he can do.
Only God is worthy of all trust; it is one thing to trust "someone" and quite another is trusting God. Trust him, is "trust in his power, wisdom, and goodness" with this kind of confidence, we know that our paths will be the better, and that he it is who controls our lives, allowing us to always walk with his presence. Then do not trust in God? We learn their ways, lift up our hands to him and seize his promises. Let each case on their hands with safety and confidence. It will help us bringing us excellent solutions. Rest and wait "reveling" in his presence while he gives you the desires of your heart.
WE TALK WITH GOD:
"Thank you Lord for this new day, for giving us your Word, for giving us the security of your presence and your love." Today we surrender to your love and loyalty, trust and believe that your thoughts are better than ours. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. He instructs Lord your way, and trust him; and he will do. It will display your righteousness as the light, and your right as the noonday. It is silent before Jehovah, and waiting on it. Leave the ira, and discards the anger. not you excited in any way to do evil. Better it is a little righteous than the riches of many sinners. "Young man went, and I have aged, and I have not seen just helpless, or their offspring who beg bread." Amen.
