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.

Sharing God’s Loftiness

Psalm 113:5–9
Who is like the LORD our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes, with the princes of their people. He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy mother of...

Quote from the book, "Shaping History Through Prayer & Fasting."

The Book of Jonah records God’s dealings with the city of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, at that time the most powerful empire in the ancient world. The Bible pictures Nineveh as a cruel, violent, idolatrous city, ripe for divine judgment. God
called Jonah to go and warn Nineveh that judgment was about to fall.

Jonah refused... View more »

Generosity to Those in Need

Psalm 112:5–7, 9
Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice. Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever.

Quote from the book, "God's Remedy for Rejection."

Are you now ready to accept God’s remedy [for rejection]? If so, there are five successive steps you need to follow.

Step 1. Recognize the nature of your problem and call it by its right name—rejection. God always has to bring us to the moment of truth, even though it may seem devastating and extremely painful, before we can receive His... View more »

Quote from the booklet, "The Three Most Powerful Words."

I want to speak about the totality of God’s forgiveness. God does not partially forgive. He totally forgives. This is so beautifully set forth in a verse of the prophet Micah.

Micah 7 verses 18 and 19:
Who is a God like You, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance? You do not stay angry... View more »
