Delighting God!

Devotional Images

For the Lord delights in His people; He crowns the humble with victory. Psalm 149:4 NLT

God could be delighting in you today! If you are following Him and are not ashamed to be named as one of “His people,” He is finding joy in you. The notion that you and I could bring delight to God seems impossible, but that’s what the psalmist wrote.

What about our lives brings God delight? Based on other Scriptures, we can be sure that our obedience to God’s Word brings Him delight. We know that putting Him first is high on His list. When we put Him first we will also love our neighbors as ourselves.

When we allow God’s Spirit to inhabit our lives, we begin to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. God finds it delightful when we are full of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).

He is delighted when we anticipate and look forward to His return. Stay humble before God. Seek to do His will and to love others as He would love them. Do what is right, always. More than anything, put Him first in your life. Be the delight of God today. Live in the victory of a surrendered and godly life.

Dear Lord, I don’t know how I can bring delight to you today, but I
want to please you with all of my heart. I give myself to you today.
Fill me with your presence. Amen.
