Ps 40:8 “I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.”
The psalmist reached the point where he delighted to do the things the Holy Spirit prompted.
He loved being close to God. He loved to help others. He loved to talk with and about God.
He also comments that the law of God is now inside his heart. He has come so close to God, that his inner desires are consistent with the goodness of our Lord.
This is a wonderful place to be, and it just emphasizes for us that it is possible for us to reach.
David sinned, but repented and came closer and closer to God, and we can do the same thing.
I praise God for loving you and me.
What say you about God today?
You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.
Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.
So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!
