God Delights in You

Psalm 149:4

For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He adorns the humble with salvation.

We delight in our children, especially when they are happy and performing well. Even when they are not so happy and misbehaving, we still love them and nurture them as they go. God delights in us much the same way. We are made in His image, and just as we love our own children and want the best for them, so our heavenly Father wants the best for us.

God adorns – or dresses – the humble with salvation. The word, “salvation,” here means “deliverance, victory, prosperity.” Wherever we may stumble, encounter attack, or fall prey to the enemy’s scheming our humble submission, God grants us deliverance, victory, and prosperity because He delights in us! He takes pleasure in seeing us win, not in our defeat.

On this Father’s Day, rejoice in knowing that God delights in you. He is not angry with you, nor is He punishing you. He has not rejected you nor left you to fend for yourself. He delights in calling you His own, and He adorns you with deliverance, victory, and prosperity. Hallelujah!

Have a blessed day!
