Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 37:4 (KJV); Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
The Hebrew word for delight, used in our theme scripture is, ‘anag.’ This word is translated to mean, to be soft, delicate and pliable.
A man who delights in God is one whom God can bend and twist to His will and purposes because that man is receptive to God as He leads him.
Every Christian ought to ask themselves the question, “how flexible am I to God?”
If God told you to abandon a course of action that you have undertaken for the past ten years, would you, especially if it is very profitable in your eyes? If God told you to walk away from a relationship you have clung to for a long time, would you?
As a minister of the gospel, if God asked you to preach in the hardest to reach areas with no lights and cameras to witness your sacrifice, would you?
If God asked you to give to the man who has been blackening your reputation in the media and pray for him like you would for someone you love deeply, would you?
God is searching for the heart that answers His call with diligence, for a will that bends to Him with no reservations and for a mind that responds with no attempt at rationalising God’s intentions.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God is searching for the heart that answers His call with diligence, for a will that bends to Him with no reservations and for a mind that responds with no attempt at rationalising God’s intentions.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this truth. My heart thirsts and pants for You. I walk in Your perfect will because I am flexible and available. Wherever You send me, I go. Whoever You wish me to bless, I bless. I respond to Your instructions with diligence because You are my Lord and master, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
