Day 18 (March 24): Don’t Ignore the Lord!

Last night was special. We spent some time in prayer before the start of the instructional classes. Already I’ve been hearing great news of how The Road to Financial Empowerment class and the Leadership Class has been helpful to people. Post your testimony so that others can be encouraged about God’s working in your life.

Tonight at the West Campus @ 7:00 p.m., we will offer them the experience of those two classes.

In Psalm 37:4 we learn: “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” This is a powerful insight that David received about God’s ways. It is as if God gives us a blank check when we delight ourselves in Him.

To delight in the Lord means to find joy and excitement in serving Him. This is very possible if you start praying something like this before you start your day: “God, help me to go on a spiritual adventure today. I want to experience your supernatural leading today.” Start praying that and then be open. Excitement is about to take place. Aspects of your life will be unpredictable, yet delightful.

As your relationship with God begins to grow in excitement, you will find your times of prayer will be more effective. Make up in your mind that today begins the rest of your life. Choose to delight yourself in the Lord. And, remember: it’s His responsibility to give you the desires of your heart. Your inner most desires are important to God. He promises to fulfill your desires as you make Him your joy.

Post an example of a person who has unique encounters with God. Why are they unique?

  1. I have found that through the financial trial we have been facing that God has been there every step of the way. Opening doors for us and provisions as well. Being self-employed we had a situation were someone was not willing to work with us and literally told us to throw in the towel......that person was actually removed from that position and replaced with someone I actually knew and was a brother in the Lord who has consistently worked with us to ensure our success. I have learned that after losing material wealth....JESUS is really all we need...HE IS ENOUGH!!!.
