Boredom Or Delight

Individuals who know the Lord are never bored with Him. The better they know Him the less bored they are with their lives. The Lord is a steady but surprising source of reserved and appropriate excitement. Nothing and no one can provide pure, sinless and satisfying excitement like He can. Everything He does and provides is matchless. If you have never been excited by God and about Him I feel sorry for you. He is the most interesting and delightful person there ever was. I pray you will find Him to be those things. Until we receive Jesus into our hearts and lives we can only know ABOUT Him. When we receive Him into our hearts we can experience Him personally and REALLY know Him. He becomes truly and increasingly knowable only when He is living in our hearts.

Psalms 1:1-2: Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

Psalms 27:4: One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

Psalms 37:4: Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Isaiah 58:13-14: If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: 14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

If we are to know the Lord better, we will have to associate with others who Him better. If we are to find delight in Him, we will have to associate with others who delight in Him. Those who know the Lord the best and delight in Him the most are those who attend a Biblical church the most faithfully, study the Bible the most, study the Lord the most, pray the most and serve Him the most. They also try to sin less and confess their sin quicker because sin does not please the most interesting and delightful One.

If you are bored you either do not have Jesus in your heart or you are not letting Him into your boring life.
