Living in the place of joy

The Word

I take joy in doing your will, my God… (Psalm 40:8)


God designed the earth, all within and around it, and then blessed the children of God with wonderful plans too numerous to list.

With each unfolding breakthrough in technology to view further into space, scientists declare new discoveries previously unknown. This trend will continue as long as technology advances, for the creation of God is inexhaustible.

As God’s creation escapes our comprehension, so his great plans escape our ability to catalog as well. Thus we are wise to embrace his plans and not ours. Not only is his will perfect, but his unlimited resource assure their complete materialization as he desires.

Each of us, in serving God and his plan, experience internal fulfillment, deep privilege, life purpose, and the wonder of divine design. He offers opportunity we could never accomplish on our own. His will is pure, perfect, destined to succeed, and fashioned to honor God.


I can rest in your design for my life, Lord, for it is right and good. Knowing what I am called to do in this life and doing it will bring internal joy. I take pleasure in doing your will, my God. Lead me today through the steps of your will. Amen.

“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth,  as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
