Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. (Amp)
Secret is the primary word in this verse for me. Many women want secret things that they tell no one about, but God knows. In
Jer 1:12 the words says that God carefully watches over his word to perform it.
Give God his word back to Him and He will perform it. When the Lord tells you to say something, maybe in response or a word of knowledge, do it.
Prov. 25:11 says A word fitly spoken in due season is like apples of Gold in settings of silver.
Obedience brings answers to your prayers.
So if we would simply delight ourselves in the Lord we would have that secret things we desire, be it a marriage with 2.5 kids, learning how to play the piano at 60 years old or going to law school at 38 years old, he will grant it.
The problem usually comes when we make our primary goal to get marriage when we haven’t given any time or attention to our creator and what he wants from us. Women are never more attractive to a man then when they have their own goals and aspirations and follow them. When they come from God you actually carry a light about you, and who wouldn’t want to be part of the Light. I dare say that is it and aphrodisiac to men.
So how do we delight, rejoice or give great pleasure to the Lord.
Hebrews: 11:6 says that it is impossible to please God without faith. (KJV)
We must have faith that when we do what He has commanded us to do, He will protect us. I remember being afraid to tell my husband a decision that God had given me, He started saying, God didn’t tell m___ and then there was silence. God protected me. I continued with my assignment and after I was happier than I had been in years.
Years later when I undertook the projects that God gave me, alone came witty inventions, finances and another promise from God, which is: I am going to give you triple for your trouble, not double but triple this year. This prophecy came from the pulpit a few months ago but it first came to me on January 1, 2009 just after I started the book. He told me what the book was going to produce, which is wealth; the second thing it was to produce was a movie. The third I’ll keep to myself a while longer. The second time I heard this was from a person that God assigned to me to help. The third time I heard this was from TD Jakes on TV. Everything that he said I received as a download on New years “09”. The fourth time to hear something like this was from my cousin whom the Lord has told me that we were like one in the spirit. We would get the same message from heaven at the same time. He said the Lord told Him that the business (witty invention) would bring a trillion dollars.
The fifth time was actually a few months ago in church from my pastor who brings a fresh word from the Lord on a regular basis.
The monies from the witty inventions are to sow back into the Kingdom of Heaven in whatever venue the Lord choses. I am a witness, that you cannot beat God giving.
When the Lord formed you in your mother’s womb you already had your assignment. While you were growing up you were being groomed for your assignment. God gives gifts to each of us to edify the body of Christ and talents, which we learn and perfect. If we would just take a chance and say what am I made to do.
Often the Lord will wake you up early in the morning and give you something, or a dream. Get up and do it or write it down because that is considered an act of worship because you were obedient. While I was writing the book I thought, Oh, I didn’t study and praise God before I started, but The Lord told me that writing the book was worship. So just, “Do what God tells you to do” and peace will follow.
Peace, is that not something that we all want, Yet often we forgo peace to please others, our families, and employers, Clergyman etc.
As I said last time, peace is a great way to know that you are in the plan of God. Many times when I struggle with a decision and I took the right route, peace over took me.
Many times it will sounds like: I feel like just leaving, or never coming back, or I need to just get away for awhile to think. If we would just give in to those inclinations and still away and spend just a little time with the Lord He would lead you to a better place where peace is waiting.
May God richly bless you, and there is deliverance for you.
