The Father’s Delight in Us

Are you aware of God’s delight in you? Have you delighted in Him? I’ve found a few verses and a video to help you consider His love for you today.

“Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.” ~ Micah 7:18

“But the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.” ~ Psalm 147:11

“For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
    he adorns the humble with salvation.” ~ Psalm 149:4

And Samuel said,

“Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
    as in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
    and to listen than the fat of rams.” ~ 1 Samuel 15:22

“The Lord your God is in your midst,
    a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.” ~ Zephaniah 3:17
