This was the first movie by Sherwood Pictures- the church based group that also did Facing the Giants (one of my favorites), Fireproof, and Courageous. It is about a used car lot owner who had been devious with his ways but decided to give his life to God and went honest. The movie shows his struggles and God’s ultimately rewarding him for “delighting [himself] in the Lord.”
Even though it seems a little amateurish in the production, the message is still just as strong. I haven’t been delighting myself in God for I’ve felt like He couldn’t even see me. I haven’t been believing but the movie reminded me of one of my favorite verses… but in context. Wow! Mind. Blown! Amazing how we can allow ourselves to forget His Word and the promises found therein!!!!
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. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. Ps 37:4-12
All this time the answer to my doubt was in Your Word!!!! Forgive me for my doubt. Forgive me and help me believe again. Believe in Your goodness. Believe in Your faithfulness! I love You Jesus,
