Psalm 40:9

“I delight to do your will, my God; your law is in my inner being!”

+++

I think we would all delight in doing God’s will.

But I’m also thinking that many of us are not exactly sure what God’s will is.

Today’s scripture tells us that God’s law is in my inner being.

The truth is, we do not need to look anywhere outside ourselves to find God’s will.

We only need to get in touch with our inner being.

We only need to let go of our ego-generated-wants.

As Jesus put it, “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” (Matthew 16:25).

Some form of meditation such as Centering Prayer is very helpful.

In Centering Prayer, you set aside 20 minutes or more to simply practice letting go.

As you let go, you rest in God.

As St. John of the Cross said, “Silence is God’s first language.”

All we need to do is be present because God is Presence.

When Moses asked for God’s name, God said “I AM” (Exodus 3:14).

And as St. Paul said, in God “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

The more we connect to this inner beingness, the more grounded our lives will be in God, and the more grounded our lives will be in Love itself since God is love (1 John 4:8).

Get to know your belovedness in God.

Share this love with others in your words and actions.

What else could be more delightful?
