The Delight of God

“No, the Lord’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love.” -Psalms 147:11 NLT

The Delight of God (spoiler alert: it’s you!)

The writer of Psalms 147 makes three things clear:

  1. God provides for His created world.
  2. God responds to the needs of His children.
  3. He is not impressed by our own means of strength and power.

There is one more thing God wants us to experience and know:  …the Lord’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in His unfailing love.

Simply put: You are God’s delight when:

  1. You come to God with deep respect, awe, and trust.
  2. You put all of your hope into the care of His unfailing love.



Delight means to please someone greatly and/or to bring someone great pleasure.

Have you ever considered that you please God greatly and you bring Him great pleasure?

The truth is, that is exactly what happens when you worship God and place all of your trust in Him!


Please know that God provides for His created world.  Have confidence in God’s response to the needs of His children (you).  Don’t place any confidence in your means of strength and power.

Experience God’s delight in you.  Give Him the respect and worship due Him.  Trust Him with everything.

Do this and you will know the delight of God in your life.


Dear God,

Thank You for reminding us of Your delight in us when we give You the devotion and worship due to You. Thank You for reminding us of Your delight in us when we place all of our hope in Your unfailing love.

Now, help us to receive Your great pleasure in us.

In the name of Jesus, we pray,


-Ed McDowell, CEO Warm Beach Camp Ministries

Help in the Challenges

Luke 24:13-16 NLT "[13] That same day two of Jesus’ followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem. [14] As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened. [15] As they talked and discussed these things, Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them. [16] But God kept them from recognizing him."   God, I did not recognize You! One of God’s ways of approaching us is to simply meet us where ...

Exploring your worth in Christ

“For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hands and says to you, ‘do not fear, I will help you.'" Isaiah 41:13 What I do defines who I am. The choices I make define my value – for better or for worse. Are those things true? There are countless times in my life where I believed that what I did defined who I am. One poignant example occurred when I was 14 years old. I ...
