Delight Thyself in the Lord!

I heard that “the Word of God is the will of God” for the first time in my life in The Way Ministry, and that simple but powerful statement became the foundation of my growth in the Word of God. The Word of God taught in The Way Ministry drastically changed my whole life.

Two of my favorite verses in the Bible are Psalms 37:4 and 5: “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” I never understood those verses before I came to The Way Ministry, but through the rightly divided Word, they became clear to me. I’m very thankful to God for the blessings I continue to reap from applying them each day of my life.

Delighting myself in the Lord put into concretion the desire of my heart, which was to have a brilliant life. At the end of my studies, I wasn’t sure that there would be a job for me even though my parents had done their best by sending me to the best schools in my country at the time. To be able to get a good job, you must come from a well-known family or be acquainted with higher-ranked executives. Thank God, through the teachings I was receiving weekly at home fellowship meetings, I actively started studying the Word, praying with great joy, doing the Word by renewing my mind in any situation, and seeking ways to serve God and His people. Then, I saw God’s mighty hand work in my life! I got a wonderful job that was exceeding abundantly above all that I asked or even thought! It was a job beyond all of my expectations—secretary at the U.S. embassy.

With that tremendous victory in my life because of the rightly divided Word of God, my heart started burning with the desire to give my very best to God even more. And what I experienced is that the more I gave to God in service, in abundantly sharing and tithing, the more I received from Him in any aspect of my life and the lives of my beloved ones. I was very blessed!

I can remember once while enjoying the performance of The Way of Togo dance troupe, I thought in my mind that I would be very happy to work with that wonderful group. It was just a thought, and God brought it into reality! Some years later, the Country coordinator appointed my husband and me to supervise that wonderful group. God always does exceeding abundantly above all that we think.

The Word of God is true and always works effectually in our lives as we decide to believe it wholeheartedly. I experienced and continue to experience many victories, many blessings, and tremendous joy. I overcame and continue to overcome situations with the Word of God I have learned in The Way Ministry, and I’m thankful to God for making it available to us.
