Our delight in God’s divine work is an expression of our acceptance of His will being done in our lives! I have found that the vast numbers of people who have given themselves over to the sadness of soul that is burgeoning from calloused, cold hearts. Many of these precious people were once zealous, fire baptized believers who are now cool toward God and His Kingdom. The apparent coolness of heart speaks of a life that no longer finds pleasantry in serving God. These people have a form of godliness, but there is no life in them.

These people are simply existing, content to exist in the abject poverty of their broken relationship with God. All cheer is gone! Their cheerfulness and joy have fled from the quarter of their feeble soul.

You see, the man or woman who delights with cheer in service to their Lord is the person who proves that their obedience is the element of their faith.

These persons who choose to make the Lord of Glory their delight are people who determine to live on the cusp of enthusiasm and the cutting edge of praise. These are they who learn that praise is not exclusive to a melody or a song, but praise is a weapon to be used all the day long. It is our God-given weapon that confounds our enemies and invokes the help of our angelic help.

When we enter into God’s gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise, we secure our portion in the land of the living — in the land of fair Canaan. From Nebo, it’s easy to peer into the yonder gaze of marvel and see that little river of death glistening in the sunlight. But across the golden threshold of that liquid band, you can see at once the pinnacles of the Eternal City. Here, in this land, the Son never ceases to shine and night is no more. In this land we discover the pleasant country of faith, where the inhabitants sing and dance to the eternal songs of Amazing Grace. In this land, so bright and fair, we discover our inheritance — the place of our renewal, restoration, portion, provision, crown, and song!

More than pearly gates or walls of jasper, more than crowns of gold or eternal splendor, the object of our affection is fully enthroned there! There, we all shout: We see God! He is the sum and substance of our heaven; He is the joyful hope of our lives. He is the Delight of our discipleship, He is the communion of our love. He is the Alpha of our Omega, He is the unclouded vision our searching eyes long to see, He is the glorious splendor of the last days.

It’s Jesus, and all Jesus. He is the object of our love, our eternal vison, and our holiest worship and joy! I don’t know how you may feel, but for me, my heart longs to see Him who shall be the Splendor of these Latter Days. In Him, His brightness will never dim, nor His glory ever fade! O’ what a joy it is then to say, “I shall see God!”
