This devotional book encourages us to delight ourselves in God, rather than feel as though it is our obligation or duty as a Christian to try to delight ourselves in Him. When we wholeheartedly delight in the Lord, great things happen. This devotional helps readers learn what it means to truly delight in the Lord, based on the Bible verse Psalms 37:4: "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." This devotional book contains weekly encouragement devotionals divinely designed to inspire spiritual growth, uplift your spirit, strengthen your resolve, and encourage a transformed walk with Christ. As good Christians, we make sure we go to church every Sunday out of duty. We practice good stewardship out of duty. We pray out of duty. We may even attend a weekly Bible study out of duty. As a result, we get so caught up in fulfilling our obligations as Christians that we can lose sight of the joy that Jesus can bring to our lives each and every day. Jesus said in John 10:10, "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." God wants each of us to have this abundant life. This life is not wrapped up in worldly things, but rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus and joyfully living in obedience to His word. The question to you is: Are you truly enjoying Jesus yet? This book contains weekly encouragement devotionals divinely designed to inspire spiritual growth, stir your spirit, strengthen your steadfastness, and inspire a transformed walk with Christ. Devotionals contain a focus scripture for the week, study questions to encourage application to daily life, topical prayers to give strength for the journey and a place to reflect and write any thoughts through the week.
