Pure Joy

by Cheryl on October 5, 2007

May God hold us close enough to Him to clearly hear His voice. Lord, grow me up – and into You.

I don’t want to be content as a spiritual babe, longing and asking only for what you can do for me, give to me; But to delight in You and knowing You – for the desires of my heart to line up with yours. Give me your desires. Use me for your purposes, and show me your ways.

Psalm 37: 4Delight yourself in The LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Matthew 6: 33Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and (He will provide for your needs).

Hebrews 6: 1Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation (of elementary teachings).

James 1: 2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Joy is hearing God speak to us…. Joy is knowing we are obeying….. Joy is knowing The Lord, Himself.
