Our Heavenly Father’s Delight By Brenda Drake

I wasted so many years worrying over how God thought I was doing.  I expected a hard hand of correction to fall at all times.  The closer we get to Jesus and the more we consume the Word of God we get a glimpse of the magnitude of love Heavenly Father has for us.  While we were yet sinners He loved us so much He sent Jesus to pay our debt of sin so we could be able to choose to love Him back.  Because of Jesus’ sacrifice in our behalf we now are a delight and a treasure to our Heavenly Father.

Our Heavenly Father’s Delight

Heavenly Father delights in His child, such a joy in His gaze;
At his accomplishments He lavishes praise.
His hand is always ready to assist;
Never for His child will He His love resist.
When we learn to speak like Jesus, His heart is glorified.
When the enemy strikes, His anger is alive.
His eyes always see ahead, He is never at loss.
Jesus provided everything for us at the cross.
Those that walk with confidence and entrust their life,
Truly brings our Father in heaven great delight.  
As we fully believe what the Word has said,
We find sweet peace and joy as by the Spirit we are led.
The Father is so delighted by faith He pours into our lives even more,
So we can bring more children to be the delight of the Lord

Exodus 19:5
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Numbers 14:8
If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
