Life’s Sweet Spot:
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion;
3 May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah
4 May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,
And fulfill all your purpose.
5 We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
6 Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen;
But we have risen and stand upright.
9 Save, Lord!
May the King answer us when we call. Psalm 20
Having played baseball growing up, I understand the importance of connecting with the sweet spot on the bat when hitting the ball. It is the perfect place on the bat that drives the ball further and with solid power. Golfers also talk about the the sweet spot on their club. In both instances it takes understanding, endurance and focus to achieve the sweet spot.
It is no different for the Christian who is seeking the will of God for their life. That sweet spot in life comes when our heart’s desire aligns with the will of God. In verse four of Psalm 20, it speaks of God granting His followers their heart’s desire so that our purpose in life is fulfilled. The implication is not God bending His will to fit our desires but more that our desires harmonize with His will to accomplish His intended purpose for us. When we make contact with that sweet spot, it is a life home run every time.
Are you hitting life’s sweet spot? Reading John Chapter 3 is a great start. Jesus has a discussion with a man who is seeking life’s greatest sweet spot.
“The heart of true faith is rooted in and guided by truth; truth established by God through the essence of His nature and His Word. Without His truth as revealed in the Bible, man can only stumble in his effort to know Him and be redeemed by Him.” M.P. Bramble
