Are you Happy?
Psalm 37: 4-5 AMP “Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him also and He will do it.”
Today as you start your day I want to encourage you to take the first couple of minutes of your day and think of all the good things that you have received during this week. Sit down and make a list. Looking for each gift or surprise that came your way. Now think of the person who gave it to you, and then say thank you.
Now think of all the wonderful gifts God has given you during this week. Write it down and think of the people that do not have half the gifts you have right now in your life. Then go and take delight in the LORD.
By making a mental note you cannot actually perceive the amount of great and wonderful things that you have received from the LORD. It will disappear like mist in the sunlight.
It is with great pleasure and with enthusiasm LORD that we come before YOUR throne today. Oh dear, LORD, we want to say thank You for a beautiful day, for the lovely flowers and for the air we breathe. We want to take delight in YOU for being there for us each and every minute of the day. LORD as we think of all our gifts and privileges in our lives we want to say Thank YOU, LORD.
It is with excitement and enthusiasm that we come to YOU today. It is with pleasure and feelings of joyfulness that we stand before YOU in awe of Your greatness, the goodness You bestowed on each of us. Your mercy LORD is new every day, You are with us each and every minute of every day. In awe, we worship and praise YOU. In awe, we stand in YOUR presence.
Abba Father, as we take pleasure in reading and studying Your Word each day, we humbly pray asking for the necessary wisdom, insight, and understanding. With excitement, we learn as much as we can from Your word. We delight in each and every word and we want to be an aroma pleasing to You. Bowing down and worshiping You Abba Father in the Holy Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We delight ourselves in You today, clothing ourselves with Your presence and Your love over each of us. We adore and worship You ABBA Father. Thank You for this time in humble prayer. We love YOU, LORD. Amen
