The Lord Delights in YOU!
“For the Lord delights in you and will claim you as His own.” Isaiah 62:4
Delight- “great pleasure, joy; please greatly, extreme pleasure or satisfaction; high degree of pleasure or enjoyment; joy; rapture.” http://www.thefreedictionary.com/delight
“He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because He delights in me.” Psalm 18:19
“The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Psalm 37:23
So many times I feel this can’t possibly apply to me. I don’t consider myself “godly”. I fail and trip up so often. But my “godliness” does not come from my goodness or ability. But by Jesus goodness and ability. But by what Jesus did on the cross for me- taking my sin, my failure, my lack on him and giving me in exchange his goodness, his life, his godliness. Therefore when the father looks on me He looks on me through Jesus’ colored glasses. I am pure, I am holy.
My first reaction when I mess up is to run from God much like Adam and Eve did in the garden. But He wants me to instead run to Him and be cleansed and forgiven; restored to right relationship. Father God is a loving Father not ready to beat us when we fail; but to love us and forgive us. He delights in us. He loves us. We are precious to Him. If only we could really grasp this notion. How our lives would change! Today think on this. The Lord delights in YOU!
