IT’S TIME TO GET ECSTATIC;
(The Lord Can Give You Such Delight)
TO THE BIBLE Luke 10:41-42
“Martha, Martha, the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
The Bible tells us in Luke 10, how on a certain day Jesus visited Mary and Martha in their home. While Mary, with great excitement, sat at the feet of the Master to hear His words, Martha, the elder sister, hurried to the kitchen to fix something for Jesus to eat. Upset that her younger sister didn’t come to help her, Martha complained to the Master and said, “…Master, don’t you care that my sister has abandoned the kitchen to me?
Tell her to lend me a hand” (Luke 10:40 MSG). Mincing no words, Jesus chided Martha and commended Mary for choosing the more excellent path. Mary delighted herself in the Lord and His words, and this was pleasing to the Master.
Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” How do you delight yourself in the Lord? It’s by getting excited and ecstatic about Him! Getting excited about His Word, and seizing every opportunity to learn from Him and have fellowship with Him! Those who are often excited about the Lord this way always have supernatural things happening in their lives; they always have testimonies of victories, successes, and blessings.
Note the construction of the verse we just read again. It says, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you….” In other words, without praying, the good things you desire will automatically be made available to you because you’ve delighted yourself in the Lord. You’ll never have to ask for anything for yourself. He’ll grant it before you ask Him. Isn’t this wonderful? Therefore, be excited and exuberant always in your service to Him, and fellowship with Him.
Isaiah 58:14; Job 23: 12
Blessed heavenly Father, I’m so grateful to know that you delight in me, and made me for your pleasure. I give pleasure to you today by walking in your perfect will, guided by your wisdom. Thank you for giving me all things richly to enjoy, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
