“The Lord takes delight in his people. He awards with victory those who are humble.” Psalm 149:4

God delights in the humble. This shouldn’t surprise us. Humility in God’s presence is the acknowledgment that he is our creator. The humble elevate God to his rightful place and respond respectfully to him.
Humility lacks pride and arrogance. God awards that with a victory.
I’m participating in Write 31 Days this month. I’ll be writing on Delight. Join me here each day in the month of October for a short reflection on something I’m learning about what God is delighted by, and how delight connects us to him.
