His Image Part 2

Presented by: Pastor Lynden on July 9, 2017.

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will grant you the desires of your heart. This passage in Psalms is the essence of becoming recreated in His image.

Psalm 37:3-4 New King James Version (NKJV)

3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

The continued decay of popular culture, expressed by ever increasing immoral and anti Biblical laws on marriage as well as television series reflecting changing attitudes on family values demonstrate that these worldly institutions are trying to satisfy only that which Jesus can satisfy.

God has given us a fail-safe word, His Word. He says we can have what we desire.

When I receive the instructive word of the Lord, I delight in it because it is the best thing for me. The real challenge is — Do I delight when the Holy Spirit —  and I know the Holy Spirit has spoken to me through the Word of God and I will follow and obey the instructions and put things in order according to the Word of God, not according to the way I desire.
