Matthew 5:14-16 New Living Translation (NLT)
14 “You are the light of{Christ to} the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

2 Corinthians 4:6-7 New Living Translation (NLT)
6 For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.

January 30, 2013

Psalm 37:3-4Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

From NetBible Ps 37:4

  • Delight[06026] = to be soft{pliable}, be delicate, be dainty
  • Desires[04862] = request, petition, prayers

*Faith and obedience (v. 3) will bring divine blessing (v. 4).

Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and do good!
Delight yourself also in Him
Faith and obedience bring divine blessing and triumph full of joy.

Isaiah 64:8O LORD, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And we all are the work of Your hand.

Be soft, pliable, let Him have His way in your heart
Let the joy of the Lord shine in and through you
Triumph in His praise!

He will give you the desires of your heart.
