What Are You Delighting In?

2018-01-03 | 🔗
When you delight in the Lord, you love what the Lord loves. You love the things that God loves. You want to do what God wants you to do. You want to go where God wants you to go. When you love God, your desires are for the things of God and you give yourself to them. The apostle Paul sums up what I’m trying to say: “The heart regulates the hands” (2 Corinthians 8, MSG). What is in your heart, you put your hands to. What you’ve allowed to form in your heart, you go after because you have passion for it. Your hands and your heart work together.
