eat and rejoice

Deuteronomy 26:11a

And you shalt rejoice in every good [thing] which the LORD your God has given unto you...

How do you read your Bible, pray, witness, and go to meetings? Bored and miserable, because you have to? Or gladly, finding pleasure in Jesus?

It's not like you earn some kind of points for being miserable, and then the Lord will reward you by letting you go do something else fun. Don't think that you should be miserable, doing "good things" to please the Lord.

Do you given your most affection to the Lord Himself? Or to anything or anyone else, setting up an idol in your heart? The Lord wants us to delight ourselves in Him.

Deuteronomy 27


...the LORD your God gives you, a land that flows with milk and honey; as the LORD God of your fathers has promised you.


...eat there, and rejoice before the LORD your God.
