“The Pleasure of the Lord God”
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of the warrior; the Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing Love. Psalm 147:10-11
God’s pleasure is not in the strength of the horse nor does He delight in the legs of the warrior. The horse and the warrior are temporal and both, at some point in time, will be ineffective. They will lose their power and strength and bring no pleasure or delight to our Almighty God, whose power and strength is far ABOVE that of ANY mortal being.
But the Lord God Almighty delights in those who are in AWE or who fear Him. The word ‘fear here does not mean ‘afraid’, but it means ‘awe or reverence’ in essence it is saying that the Lord delights in those who are in awe of Him or who has reverence for Him. The ones who put their HOPE and TRUST in His UNFAILING love.
A love that is so great in its magnitude that NOTHING can compare to its POWER or STRENGTH, not even the strength of a mighty stallion or the power of a mighty warrior. A love that knows NO boundaries, a love that will be everlasting, it will never weaken, nor die, but has STRENGTH and POWER that is from everlasting to everlasting. It is a love that will NEVER fail. A love that will bring comfort and a peace that passes ALL understanding.
When we are hurting physically, emotionally or spiritually we can DEPEND on His unfailing love, because it is ALWAYS available to us, and it will get us through any situation, if we will just come to Him and let Him take us in His BIG arms and love on us, we can have the STRONG hope and TRUST in His ever ABIDING, UNENDING, AWESOME, MAGNIFICENTLY POWERFUL, and UNFAILING LOVE, that is ours for the asking.
This is what you MUST do to experience His AWESOME, UNFAILING love, you MUST: CONFESS your sins to God, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and truly experience His UNFAILING love and bring PLEASURE to the Lord God. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
