85. Being in Him

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." (Psalm 37:3-4, NKJV)

Trust in the Lord – place all that you are in Him. Know that He is good. Know that He is able to deliver you. Know that He is Lord of all and there is none like Him. Trust Him with your heart, soul, mind, and spirit. Give your all to Him and be filled with His Holy Spirit.

Dwell in Him and feed on His faithfulness – As we abide in Him, He has promised to abide in us. He is faithful to His word. He is faithful to Himself and will do what He has said He will do. Do not count His faithfulness as the world counts it. When we examine ourselves, we see that we are unfaithful in so many things that it’s difficult to believe that true faithfulness can even exist. But, He Is faithful. Trust in His faithfulness and rely on Him. Seek Him, know Him, be with Him and incline your heart to rest in Him.

Delight yourself in Him – Be ever joyful in His Presence. Be glad in Him. He is true joy and peace. In Him we find true contentedness. When all the world seems to go astray, take joy in knowing Him and being with Him.

He will give you the desires of your heart. As we trust in Him, dwell in Him, and delight in Him, He gives us His desires. We find ourselves becoming unified and one in Him. Our desires become His desires and His desires flow into our hearts with such joy that we begin to understand His holiness and purpose for our lives.

The joy of the Lord is our strength. Being in Him brings Him joy and brings us strength in our inner man. Be strong in the Lord. Delight yourself in Him and He will fulfill His purpose in you today!
