Beautiful Saviour - PlanetShakers

A song that speaks about who God is, giving Him all the glory and praises from the heart. Worship Him with this song, it's incredible just proclaiming who he is and declaring our love for Jesus.

Jesus, Beautiful Saviour,
God of all Majesty,
Risen king,
Lamb of God,
Holy and righteous,
Blessed redeemer,
Bright morning star

All the heavens shout your praise,
All creation bow to worship You

How wonderful, how beautiful,
Name above every name, exalted high
How wonderful, how beautiful,
Jesus your name, name above every name, Jesus

I will sing forever, Jesus I love you, Jesus I love you

Psalm 37:4

The literal translation from the Hebrew text reads: “And put your pleasure upon the Lord, that He may give to you the requests of your heart.

Delight from elook dictionary means [noun] a feeling of extreme pleasure or satisfaction; Delight is obvious and overflowing with passion for His Word, His principles and the character of Jesus. It does not come from religious acts but simply finding satisfaction in the Lord and His ways.
When we are passionate about His word and living it out loud, the will of God is executed in our lives and in other words, His desires becomes our desires. We would be sensitive to know what is good for ourselves and our request will be granted according to His will.

Read the whole chapter of Psalm 37

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.

It's hard trying to be strong when we don't hear from God. Many times we need answers to bring us security. When signs are not showing and everything is blurred with too many 'noises' and 'voices' be it our own, the devil, others, what do we do? We need to run to our Author and Finisher of our faith, He alone knows what the future holds, He is the one who knows us better than we know ourselves. There is absolutely no point in worrying, it adds more frown and lines to our face not to mention maybe gray hairs.

God will answer or show the way when the time is right. Waiting teaches patience, patience begets humility, humility is a character of Jesus. When God make us wait, it's always for a good reason. The sheep knows his Shepherd's voice. I'm talking aloud to myself "Don't let the noises drown the most pertinent voice in our life, His Voice"

Failing Forward by John Maxwell

Recommended reading: thumbs up! Reality: everything we read that is good is futile if we don't apply the right things at the right time. On the contrary, what we read will be in our brain's database and when situations crop up, we may just know what to use.

This book is about surviving a fall, regaining your stand and heading forward. There is no such thing as giving up. This book will inspire you to look for opportunities instead of waiting for one to land at your feet. Making things happen no matter how small it might be, taking every problem as a stepping stone for something better. There are a lot of testimonies and lessons you can learn from real life experiences written in this book.

John Maxwell is one of my favorite author and this is one of his best. My first John Maxwell reading is The Winning Attitude and that has helped shape my thoughts on building character in line with the word of God. Bless young readers with this book. It will do wonders.
