I know you are pleased with me…-Psalm 41:11a
David noted in the middle of this particular psalm that he knew that God was pleased with him. He must have been happy to have such a rewarding message from God.
Well, I took this message as a personal message from God to me today. It’s nice to get a pat on the back from an employer or friend or family member, but to get one from Dad is the greatest. It’s not that I’m gloating over this notion, but I do take comfort and reward from knowing that my heavenly Father is pleased with me. He has even told me such himself and through other members of the body of Christ.
Father, today I just want to express my gratitude for having such a loving Father who acknowledges his children and reassures them from time to time that they are his and are pleasing him with how they conduct their lives here on earth. Sure, we have our flaws and shortcoming, but you always see us through the blood of Jesus and his righteousness. Thank you for the greatest gift of all – Jesus! May my life always be pleasing to you in what I think, say, and do. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
