“…but the LORD was my stay. He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.”
Why did the Lord deliver David? Because the Lord delighted in David.
Isn’t it amazing to think that the Lord delights in us?
David didn’t earn the Lord’s delight by his merit, it was by God’s grace. He was a man after God’s own heart. He was seeking the Lord and delighting himself in the Lord, therefore the Lord delighted also in him.
We read in our theme verse, Psalm 37:4, that we should “Delight thyself also in the LORD”. Like David, if we will delight ourselves in Him, He will be delighted in us.
This is not because we deserve it; we are nothing outside of Him. But through God’s unmerited favor, we can find Him delighting in us as we delight in Him. Our Saviour reciprocates our delight. How encouraging that is to know!
Delight in Him today, and remind yourself that He delights in you too. He will deliver us from the storms of our lives because of His delight in us.
