“For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.” Psalm 149:4
I decided that I want to know what pleases the Lord, my Saviour, so I read His Word to find out those things.
There is a lot thinks that please Him. Sometimes, they feel so many.
Then, yesterday I read the verse above. God delights in His people. I just need to be His and He take pleasure in me.
But what does it mean to be His people. Let’s just see two verses for today.
The LORD delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love.
1 Samuel 15:22
But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
The Lord delights in His people, those who fear him and put their hope in His love (Not in their strength, realizations or in people), those who are obedient.
To be God’s people, we need to know him enough to trust Him and to obey Him.
Maybe it is finally the time to deal with all my trust issue. I want the Lord to delight in me.
