The LORD favors those who fear Him, Those who wait for His lovingkindness.” Psalm 147:11 (NASB)
Can you believe that you are one of God’s favorites? It’s true if you by faith have believed in Jesus and received His gift of salvation. For all who have, it is our purpose to please God and to praise him. We can do this by how we live. Our God has done so much for us that our supreme desire should be to please Him. We find in our verse today a wonderful promise from God and a means to please Him. We’ve mentioned that when the Bible speaks of fearing God it means showing Him the awe and respect which He deserves. This is what God expects of us and when we do show Him respect and reverence He is pleased with us. He wants us to know and expect Him to act in love toward us. Even when things do not seem to be going our way, He loves us and we have reason to anticipate Him to demonstrate His love. If we do that, He will be pleased and delighted as our verse says. This is one way we can know to please our promise giving God today.
