Day 30: When you take delight in Him, He will give you the strength and guidance you need to pursue whatever it is He has for you.
When God places something on your heart, you don’t have to be ashamed about it. Perhaps you really desire to be married and all around you, people are saying, “You have time, there’s no need to worry about that because you’re so young!” Or maybe you desire to enter the mission field or change careers and you’re just not getting the support from the people you trust.
This can be very discouraging, causing you to start to wonder, “God, is it wrong for me to want to be married? Is it wrong to want to step out on faith with my business idea?”
The way that you deal with these dilemmas is by taking delight in the Lord. When you take delight in Him, He will give you the strength and guidance you need to pursue whatever it is He has for you.
Discouragement is real, but don’t let it overcome you. When it comes to what you desire, delight in the Lord more than you delight in anything else. This is the foundation you need as He guides and leads you right to where you need to be.
