July 13

“For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.” Psalm 149:4 (NIV)

There is something special about the last five psalms in our Bibles. Each begins and ends with the words, “Praise the Lord” which is the translation of the Hebrew word Hallelujah. We hear much in the Word about the love of God. We know that He is a God of compassion, that He feels sorry for us. And we’re glad for that because we sometimes come to Him in pretty bad shape. We’re glad that He takes us in anyway because of His love for us. But our God goes beyond feeling sorry for us – far beyond that. He takes delight in us. He is glad for us. He is happy that we are His. What a wonderful God He is! Allow Him to make us people He can be proud of.
