We are half way through our 31 Days of Delight. I hope you're having fun!
In this section we are talking about things we do that delight the Lord. Today's verse from the Message Bible gives us some very clear and surprising instructions on delighting Him.
- Eat with gusto
- Drink with a robust heart
- Dress festive
- Relish life
- Make the most of each day. You only get one chance at each day, so grab it and go for it.
So often guilt and shame try to stop us from enjoying our life. Our self-talk says you shouldn't enjoy that piece of pie because sugar is bad for you. You can't sit down and relax with a nice cuppa, because there is too much to do. You're too old or young to do that, whatever it is.
But that is not Gods plan. The Amplified Bible says if your are righteous, wise and in the hands of God, go your way with joy and a cheerful heart. Each day is a gift for us to enjoy. He wants us to seize the life we are blessed with, living each day to the fullest with Him. He has surprises and adventures planned, abundant blessings to pour out on you. Why? Because that is what make Him happy, Seeing you enjoy the "little things" in your life delights Him.
Take time to really enjoy the blessing God has given. Snap a few pictures, savor your food, put your favorite outfit on just because. Make a intentional effort to take pleasure in your life today and share your delight with the Lord.
