“Delighted by the Lord”
The definition of delighted is greatly pleased. Are you greatly pleased by the Lord and what He does?
In the Bible, we are told that some people were.
Please read the following verses. Luke 13:10-17
10 On a Sabbath, Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God. 14 Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, “There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.” 15 The Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? 16 Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?” 17 When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.
Now we were not present on this earth when Jesus was walking the dusty roads of Palestine. But I am still delighted by Jesus; delighted that He would love an old sinner like me, that He went to the cross for me. I am delighted that He has made a way for me to be baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ.
I realize I said I and me a lot in this morning’s thought. You can too. Anyone reading this can say what I just said. Everything that He has done of me, He did for all humanity.
When you realize this, you will be delighted by the Lord also.
You all have a tremendous day in the Lord,
Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.
Be a Blessing;
