Summary: What’s your Delight? Are you missing out on life? God wants to give you the desires of your heart, all you need do is this...
At the Billy Graham Phone Center, this past week, we handled 92 calls, and 36 of those callers received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. And THAT makes me want to SHOUT!
What’s your Delight?
Scriptures on Delight
Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Ps 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Ps 22:8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
Ps 35:9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation
Isaiah 61:10-11 NIV
10 I delight greatly in the LORD;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise
spring up before all nations.
What is Delight?
Delight means Happiness and may refer to someone or something that brings such a state, such as good-tasting food.
We’ve all heard of Sunny Delight. The orange drink
Terri’s Mom makes a wonderful Cherry Delight
Some folks delight in Chocolate. Anyone here…….???????
Let me read what I read about chocolate the other day.
Rules of chocolate:
If you’ve got melted chocolate all over your hands, you’re eating it too slowly.
Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.
The problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car. The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.
A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn’t that handy?
If you can’t eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can’t eat all of your chocolate, what’s wrong with you?
What do we call equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate: a balanced diet.
Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.
Put “eat chocolate” at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you’ll get one thing done.
A. To take delight in something is to get great pleasure, be happy about, make merry over, and derive enjoyment.
B. Many men seem to delight in sports. For others it’s camping, fishing, or hunting.
C. Women delight in shopping.
D. Youth delight in video games. College students delight in parties.
E. One might identify delight in this way. It is what happens when there is excitement inside, a tingle, a spark. When we are doing what we really love to do, or when we are with someone we really love. Like what one young lover said to his partner, “When I held you in my arms, I felt a cold chill run down my spine. I thought it was true love until I realized your pop sickle was dripping.”
Delight means happiness, or someone or something that brings such a state.
The problem is, folks are always looking for happiness, and only finding a temporary fix.
