Good morning, Lord Jesus. I want to begin my day with you! Meditating on the written Word, in the conversation of prayer with the living Word. You are the Word of God; and I'm watching and waiting for God's Word to speak to my heart.
"Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" (Luke 12:32).
You're a good Father. And it's Your good pleasure to give me the kingdom. What is "the kingdom" that You desire to give me, my Father?
As I meditate this morning, this Scripture comes to my heart: "For the kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit" (Romans 14:17).
Yes, Lord. Everything that I need to experience Your righteousness it is Your good pleasure to give me. Everything that I need to experience Your peace it is Your good pleasure to give me. Everything that I need to experience Your joy is Your good pleasure to it give me. And You give it all to me through Your Holy Spirit, the "Spirit of God “ who dwells in me. (Romans 8:9) The "Spirit of God" who leads me and positions me to receive everything that it is Your good pleasure to give me (Romans 8:14). Lord, know everything I need, so You invite me to ask you for it and you command me not to worry. (Philippians 4:6).
Thank You, my Father. Remind me that it's not prideful or selfish to ask for myself personally, and to seek and to receive all the things I need that it's Your good pleasure to give me. It bring You joy to bring me joy. It brings you peace to bring me peace. It delights you when I spend time delighting in you. It delights You to delight in me. "For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs!" (Zephaniah 3:17 NLT)
So may it be my good pleasure to delight You by graciously asking and receiving from You all You're generously giving to me in Your good pleasure. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
My family, I pray today you will ask for and receive everything it's your Father's good pleasure to give you, delighting in Him as He delights in you in an embrace of gladness together, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friends!
