A true faith in Jesus Christ will not suffer us to be idle. No, it is an active, lively, restless principle; it fills the heart, so that it cannot be easy till it is doing something for Jesus Christ.

We leave on August 9th!!!!!!

We are leaving for Peru on August 9th.  We could not be more excited to go and see what the Lord has in store for us.  The Lord is so faithful and is continuing to confirm to us that we are following His lead.

Psalms 37:4 says "Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart."

When you read that, sometimes we take it like God will give us all that we want, all that our heart desires.  Jesus said in John 14  "whatever you ask in My name I will do" Then in John 15 Jesus said  "you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you".  See the more we have fellowship with Jesus and the more we abide in Him, as John 15 states, we will begin to have the same desires as Christ.  We will be conforming to the image of Christ, so we will be asking and desiring the things that Christ would be.  When we present our request before God they will be more inline with what Christ would be seeking.
When we "delight" ourselves with Jesus, He will "give" you your desires.  I take it like Jesus Himself with place in your heart, your desires, what you long for, what you yearn for.  Delight yourselves today in Him, open His word and let Him speak to you today.  He is so faithful.
