Sometimes I find so much peace in praying the Psalms. This morning in reading through some, Psalm 149:4 struck me deeply:
“…the Lord takes delight in his people…”
Do you know that today?
Do you believe that the powerful, awesome, and holy God of the universe delights in YOU?
It is remarkable!
And just a few chapters back, the same truth speaks, “the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” (Psalm 147:11).
In Isaiah, when God tells of the new heavens and the new earth that will come, God says, “I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people.” (Isaiah 65:18-19).
Not only does He delight over us, He actually rejoices over us.
I am amazed today to serve a God that delights in His people; a God that delights in little ol’ me. Thank you, Lord!
