Have you had your Joy Juice today? Delight in the Lord as you drink in His satisfying joy.
Don’t you think that God is delighted when we are walking with Him? We can be sure that is true because we have the promise of scripture. In Zephaniah 3:17 we read: “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
Why does God delight in His children? First and foremost, He loves us! And though we make mistakes, though we are a sinful people….His love is everlasting. Of course, He rejoices when our thinking and our actions line up with His Word…when we do what is right.
According to John Piper: “ ‘Rightness’ is thinking, feeling, and doing what flows from a true perception of the supreme value of God. It is seeing truly, savoring duly, and showing consistently in action the infinite worth of God. Therefore, we are doing what is right when we are understanding the truth of God’s value for what it is, and feeling it proportionately to his universal supremacy, and acting in ways that express God’s supreme value.”
God rejoices and delights in us; He is greatly pleased when we truly value Him.
