Delight in Jesus

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

Delight yourself in the Lord , And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it. – PSALM 37:4‭-‬5 Amp

DAILY WORD:
Friends, in what do you delight yourself? Some find delight in working hard, others in sport, some in worldly wealth, fast cars, big houses etc. It is good to work hard and to be blessed with material things, however the question is does this really delight you?

Friends, maybe you have been searching for answers in life, maybe you have all the worldy things but you are still searching? I want to challenge you to commit your ways to the Lord and allow Him to direct your future. You will experience peace as you allow Him to guide you.
Remain blessed.
PRAYER:
Heavenly Father, I pray that You direct our steps in life today, flood every person reading this message with Your love and peace, so that they can experience delight in You. Amen
