Daily Delight

48 days.
48 days without a lick of rain in Alabama. The Earth is dusty. Wildfires are happening daily. And my once supple skin is now the consistency of a potato chip. This extreme drought is getting old and dry.

God's people actually experienced a dry land called The Valley of Baca in Psalm 84. In fact, although the land was desolate and dry, they were able to supernaturally change their environment through their delight in the Lord, taking it from dry to abundantly watered and blessed. Psalm 84:5-6 says, "Happy are the people whose strength is in You, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca,they make it a source of springwater; even the autumn rain will cover it with blessings. They go from strength to strength." When I'm walking through spiritually dry places, whether it be at work or out and about, sometimes my heart isn't delighting in the Lord and in the pilgrimage. But what if it did? Well, it sounds like my delight for the Lord would be a key to changing my environment and the key to empowering me to live life going from strength to strength.

If you're like me, sometimes you need that gentle reminder that the Lord should be delighted in. He is the ultimate lover of your soul and will never give up on you. Join me, in recalibrating your hearts to be happy in Him this week and in watching miracles happen around you when you do!
