Daily Delight

God wants to birth the promises and dreams of Heaven in our life. Scripture is actually where they are conceived. We dig into the Word and unearth His promises, blessings, identity and destiny over us. The study and observation of scripture, however, is where it grows and develops in the womb. As we meditate and wrap our understanding around those promises, they begin to grow within us. 

The real labour, however, is applying the Word to our lives! Yep, it’s the hardest part - we go into action, and that’s when the Word becomes (literally) flesh in us. We live out the Words and promises spoken to us. So what delivers the baby? One simple word: prayer. Prayer is never separate from our pursuit of God and His Word. Prayer releases the will of God in our lives. 

For so long, I left it out of my daily devotional process. I received the promises of God for my life joyfully, but overlooked the fact that it depends on Him for them to come to pass, much more than it depends on me. Prayer is what places the control back into God’s hands and declares our dependence upon Him to bring about His will, His promises, His destiny for us, in our lives.•

"'Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?' says the LORD. 'Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?' says your God." - Isaiah 66:9 (NIV)
