Whenever my busy thoughts were out of control, the soothing comfort of your presence calmed me down and overwhelmed me with delight. Psalm 94:19 TPT

Thoughts

In the original language this word means more than simply thinking. It focuses on those disquieting thoughts, those thoughts that keep you awake at night or in the early morning hours, the ones that creep in when everything else becomes quiet. 

Anxious is the word most translations use to describe the thoughts of the Psalmist. Anxious is defined as experiencing worry, unease, or nervousness, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

Anyone experience anxious thoughts? 

So how do we experience the soothing comfort of God’s Presence that can calm us down and fill us with delight? 

Hasten to the Lord, 

Hurry, run and be quick to acknowledge the busy, anxious thoughts then strong-arm anything that blocks us from running to the feet of Jesus. 

What anxious thoughts have you been carrying around? Write those down. Give them to God.

Psalm 94:19 AMPC

In the multitude of my anxious thoughts within me, Your comforts cheer and delight my soul!

God’s comfort:

God’s presence is His comfort. In John 14:16  Jesus tells His disciples that He is going away and God was going to send His own Spirit to live in us. The Holy Spirit is out comforter, helper, advocate, strengthener, standby and intercessor. We have access to God’s comfort and presence at any moment. 

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve laid in bed, unable to sleep, flooded with swirling thoughts that build anxiety within me. I’ve often felt like I’m riding the inside of a tornado- getting hit by flying debris and unable to find my footing because the high winds toss me to and fro. 

I hasten to the Lord. 

The moment we acknowledge these whirling thoughts is the moment we look u and see the hand of Jesus reaching down to pull us out. He lifts us up and out of our disquieting thoughts and comforts, strengthens and  fills us with His peace.

Psalm 94:19 TPT

Whenever my busy thoughts were out of control, the soothing comfort of your presence calmed me down and overwhelmed me with delight. 

Delight: 

A delight that deeply satiates our soul. This delight is soul deep, internal to external. When we acknowledge the anxious thoughts growing within us and we quickly turn to the Lord, there is great, fulfilling soul deep joy waiting for us. 

Our circumstances may not change. 

Our situations may not be different. 

Our struggles may not be gone.

BUT, we have confidence and peace to face every obstacle with joy because our feet are planted in Jesus not being tossed to and fro by our thoughts. 

The original word for delight, in this verse, means to sport or to wear, to put on. You can see when someone is delighted. They “wear” their joy in their physical appearance. Like a championship sports team displays their accomplishments by wearing special, commemorative shirts or hats, we display the joy that is unshakable and eternal. 

Let that Jesus flag fly high!!!!

Praise Him OUT LOUD! Let your praises be louder than those anxious thoughts.

💭Meditate&Reflect: 

“For the Lord is a great God, a great King above all gods. He holds in his hands the depths of the earth and the mightiest mountains. The sea belongs to him, for he made it. His hands formed the dry land, too. For he is our God. We are the people he watches over, the flock under his care. If only you would listen to his voice today!” Psalms 95:3-5,7 NLT
