What’s New at The Servant House
Delight in Christmas.
Psalm 37:4 tells us, “4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.” (NKJV). I delight in the fact that our Awesome Amazing All Powerful God delights in you and me. Each and everyone of us has a special place in God’s heart. Jesus Christ was incarniate to give us Christmas and offer us eternal life.
I recall a song as a youth that God knows and calls all the stars by name. I thought, since God cares that much for them, how much does God love me? I believe God will bless our delight focus for Christmas and the rest of our time on earth. St. Thomas Aquinas Wrote; “No man can live without delight, and that is why a man deprived of spiritual joy goes over to evil pleasures.” Henri Nouwen, Roman Catholic priest said, “A life is like a day; it goes by so fast. If I am so careless with my days, how can I be careful with my life?”
I urge us this Christmas season to daily live in the delight of God and His delight for us. “Delight” is to be happy or at peace with something. I am overflowing with joy when I make a birdie, one stroke below planned for the hole. Years ago, my handsome grandson, Aaren was riding with me and I made an eagle. The other golfers were so excited and Aaren was just wondering what was going on. I explained to him how rare it was to make eagles for the average golfer. Then he was delighted the rest of the time. When we returned home, he explained it to my wife. I think when we learn to delight in God we should share it with all in our circle and path over newscast of pandemics, racial injustice and president transition challenges.
Our God delights when we call on him. A few days ago, our great-granddaughter woke up, came to the stop of the stairs calling my name to come get her. When I hear about it, I was in awe she wanted “Papa” to come help her. If I can feel this way, how does God delight in our calling on Him?
I believe true delight runs much deeper than pain and pandemics with the power to lift us up higher than we can expect as we travel in this life journey. You are God’s delight. Even if you have been laid off, depressed, divorced, suffering in poverty or low self-esteem wrecked, single and no spouse, never forget God delight in you. You are God’s delight. So never throw a pity party like young Will Langstaff Jr. Delight in God Who will never abandon nor forsake you. You are God’s delight. God delights in you. Delight in God.
As we are approaching the end of the year, many of us are starting to think about the New Year resolutions we will commit to in 2021. But before we start making new promises let us look back to the beginning of 2020 and at the commitments we made then. As we look at finishing 2020, are we finishing well?
What do I mean by finishing well? Finishing well means that you end up at a better place than you started. Finishing well means that you grew and matured personally and spiritually over the span of the year and even the span of your life. You got better as your life went on. You endured to the end in your walk with God and did not quit. We all want to finish well like Paul states in 2 Timothy 4:7-8 “For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
