Finding Joy

Psalm 40:8Open menu

New King James VersionOpen menu

I delight to do Your will, O my God,

And Your law is within my heart.”

Verse Thoughts

When David penned these words, they were in every respect a song of thankful worship to the Father that pointed to the coming Messiah, Who would be sent from heaven to become our sacrifice for sin. It spoke of the eternal Son of God Who humbled Himself to become a servant – Who did only those things that He heard from the Father. His life was a testimony that delighted to do the will of the Father, for God’s Law was treasured in His heart.

As redeemed children we have been bought with a price and saved by grace through faith. We are ambassadors of Christ and servants of God who are called to be His witnesses to a world in need. But however glorious our salvation and privileged our service, our calling first and foremost is to worship at His feet, to delight to do His will, to treasure His Word in our hearts and to remain in the center of His will for the rest of our life.

May our highest joy and greatest delight be to live in the centre of God’s will and to treasure His word in our heart.

May our lives be a sweet-smelling savour of thankful worship and reverential praise, so that we may live and move and have our being in the centre of His will – so that we may become true witness to our Father in heaven, and a true reflection of Christ within – so that through us, God will be glorified in the world.


I delight to do Your will, O my God,

And Your law is within my heart.”

As Christians we should not be discouraged or dismayed but remember all the things God has done and stands for this alone should bring joy and happiness that someone had so much care and love for all mankind

My Prayer

Father among today’s world sometimes it is so hard to see the happiness around us let us remember all that you’ve done and who you are that you may lead us in joy and not fear as that is that what you speak all of

I myself find my joy in my writings alone as I enjoy speaking about you let others find themselves and the joy that brings them alive always in you may they also practice a joy filled healthy happy lifestyle for them and you as well
