You Cheer and Delight Me

November 10, 2010 Donna New

I’m single so I’ve taken the job of being the mother hen of the family. I say that because I fret making sure everyone is under my wings. I want Mom, Dad, brothers, sister, nieces, nephews safe and everyone loving each other and loving the Lord. And if they’re not, I worry…at least until I pray.

In the multitude of my [anxious] thoughts within me, Your comforts cheer and delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 I am praying for them, I am not praying [requesting] for the world, but for those You have given Me, for they belong to You. John 17:9

Now I have to admit there is more than me praying for my family. I am certainly not the only one. But I feel like I’m the one who frets until I can come before the Lord “for those He has given me.”

The Lord in John 17:13 said that He was coming to God in prayer …that they may experience My delight fulfilled in them, that My enjoyment may be perfected in their own souls, that they may have My gladness in them, filling their hearts.

So I should pray more and worry less because God means for our souls to be filled with delight, and enjoyment and gladness. What a joy it is to know we have the risen Lord to indwell us…the Lord that heals, the Lord that sees, the Lord who gently shepherds us.

Thank You Lord that You love my family. Thank You that you want us to be filled with delight. Show me how I can allow You to fill me and how I can help my family to be filled with cheer and delight and gladness. I love you Lord. In the precious Name of Jesus.  Amen.
