Sharing God’s Pleasures

Psalm 36:7–8
How precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings. They feast on the abundance of Thy house and Thou dost give them to drink of the river of Thy delights. NASB, NIV

That, to me, is the most beautiful picture of God’s goodness. First of all, we turn to Him out of our need. We come to Him for refuge because we’re oppressed, because we cannot handle our problems. We take refuge in the shadow of His wings, but when we get in there under the shadow of His wings, then we discover that He’s provided much more for us than mere refuge. He’s provided a feast. He’s provided abundance. We feast on the abundance of His house, and not only that, but He gives us to drink of the river of His delights. To me, that’s staggering! God does not give us to drink of a river of our own delights, but of His delights. He shares with us the things that delight Him.

You see, there are so many things that we would naturally take pleasure in that are harmful. For instance, take the practice of smoking. Many people find great pleasure in smoking, but unfortunately we all know today it’s extremely harmful. It’s a potential cause of cancer. The difference with God’s pleasures is they are never harmful, and God wants to share with us His pleasures. He wants to give us to drink of the river of His pleasures, and not only are they pleasant but they are beneficial. They’re never harmful.

Awaiting the Climax

Psalm 96:11–13
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and all the peoples...

Quote from the audio/video message, "When You Fast..."

But I want to speak about humility as an essential condition for effective prayer and I want to take a number of statements to this effect. Let’s look, first of all, before we do that, in James 4:10. There are just two other passages that we’ll look at. James 4:10:

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you... View more »

A New Song

Psalm 96:1–2
Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.

God exhorts us there to express our praise to Him in various ways. In particular, He says that we are to “sing to the LORD a new song.” God never wants His praise to become old, to become stale,... View more »

Quote from the book, "What's So Important About the Cross?"

When we are too preoccupied with the cares of the present age, that preoccupation makes the Word of God unfruitful in us. Why? Because a preoccupation with the affairs of this world chokes out the Word of God.

In Romans 12:2, Paul writes, “And do not be conformed to this world [Greek, aion, “age”], but be transformed by the renewing... View more »

Quote from the book, "Surviving the Last Days."

When John the Baptist came to prepare the way for Jesus, repentance was the first element of his message. When Jesus began to preach, His first public utterance was, “Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:16). On the Day of Pentecost when the unconverted multitudes said to Peter, “What must we do?” the first thing Peter said was, “Repent,... View more »

When My Foot Slips

Psalm 94:18–19
When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.

One thing I’ve always loved about the picture of God that we find in the Bible is this: that God is so understanding. He knows our weaknesses. He knows our frailties, and He... View more »
