You Delight The Lord

29 May

The Lord takes delight in his people.

There are so many people who think ill of themselves.  They think that they are the worst people on earth, that they have no value, that no one could possible love them, that … well, you get the picture.

Sadly, we are often in those same shoes.  Try as we might, we often feel as if we do not count.

In the eyes of people, that might be true.  However, in God’s eyes, we not only count, we are priceless!  The Lord takes delight in us because He made us in His own immortal image and likeness.  And God does not make trash.

Think about that the next time you are feeling down.  Think about that the next time someone is trying to tell you that you have no worth.  Think of that they next time someone is merciless to you.

And while you think of that, you might want to pray for those people.  Why?  Because people who treat others like dirt generally do so because they have a terrible self-image.  Pray that God show them how much He loves them.

God is love.  Let us live as people of love, as people of God, this day.

FAITH ACTION:  Pray for all those who have no self-worth, that they may come to know God’s love for them.
