DELIGHT IN THE LORD! Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.    (Psalm 37:4)

The Dhinakarans Beloved! When our hearts are filled with ‘delight’, God fulfills the desires of our heart. The joy of the Lord is our strength (Habakkuk 3:17-18). When we walk through the path of misery, challenges that are pressing us all around; through the valley of persecution and troubles we need to gird up our hearts and say, “Jesus I love you” And when we do this and worship Him in Spirit and in truth the Lord will hear our prayers.

Once, Brother R. Matthew shared his testimony to us. He had continued in prayer amidst losses and received blessings from the Lord Jesus Christ. He said, "We suddenly faced some financial crisis due to which we were forced to sell our own house. We reached a peak where we did not have enough money to even buy food. It was at this time; one of our friends counseled us and suggested us to go to the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower in Vanagaram. So, I went there every day and prayed for ten minutes regularly. I did this continuously for ten months. After this, I found that my business turned towards profit and success miraculously. Soon, money began to flow and I began paying up all my debts. Today I have cleared up most of my debts and we have enough to feed ourselves well. I thank God for changing our situations and lives."

Friend! Today you might be found wanting so many things; you may be in insufficiency but when you begin to delight in the Lord and pray God will see the joy of your heart in Him, hear your prayers and grant your heart’s desires. And when God thus blesses, He will bless in such a way that we may have to have baskets ready to pick-up the leftovers. Yes! Our God is a God of abundance. He will keep on pouring blessing upon us till we get filled and overflow to others too. We will come to a point where we would look at God and say, “Enough Lord! There is no room to contain.” (Malachi 3:10). He is a God who is able to give us more than we ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). When we delight in the Lord; when we rejoice in Him, He will bless us abundantly.

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father,

With much gratitude for all Your loving blessings upon my life, I thank You with all my heart. Master, You are the Lord who showers multiple blessing from heaven upon Your children so I praise You with all my heart. Lord, even in this New Year, I completely surrender my life into Your divine care and protection. Lead me, guide me and mold me according to Your will. To You be all the glory, praises and honor. In Jesus name I pray,
Amen.
