He Delights in You
“He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me.” Psalm 18:19; 2 Samuel 22:20 NLT
What a humbling thought! The Lord of the universe delights in us. He delights in every detail of our lives because we are His (Psalm 37.23).
What a gracious God! He created us to share His love. We disobeyed Him. He died to save us. We rejected Him. He reached down and rescued us. We stumble and falter. He pulls us out of the muck and mire.
By His grace, we put our hope in His unfailing love. He directs our steps.
He delights in us because we are His.
Be filled with awe and praise as we meditate on Him rejoicing over us with joyful songs (Zephaniah 3:17).
Where have you found safety provided by the Lord? How did He rescue you?
In worshiping the Lord on a Sunday morning in Church, I was especially moved by the song, “Rescue”, written by Jared Anderson and produced by Integrity in 2003. I hope this will bless you as much as it did me.
From My Heart to Yours,
Great post. It’s one of my favorite songs too; He is our source and our safe place. Love it!
Very reassuring post Janis… and such a beautiful song too. I had never heard it before, so thank you for posting it.
Where have I found safety? Only in His arms. How did He rescue me? He saved me from myself, first of all… a broken mess whom He lovingly pulled from the miry clay, and pieced back together.
God bless you, and hugs to Chip! Have a wonderful WFW!
I always feel safe when I rest secure in His arms. Blessings..
I am so grateful to be rescued.
I think so many of us stumble on the “He delights in ME” part…doing Breaking Free right now and that is where it all begins…with the knowledge that HE wants to lead us and all we’ve got to do is humble ourselves to it…
Have a wonderfully blessed WFW!!
Beautiful song! Thank you.
Enjoy your Word-filled Wednesday!
I love the idea of rescue – God rescues us and He cherishes, delights in us. Beautiful!
this is such a comforting thought. Thanks for sharing.
Blessings Janis, I too, find much Comfort in this song and this beautiful, reassurance of your word, message and that beautiful photo!!! Just precious to see the flowers and the beauty of nature as you walk this path.
Where I live and the trip back and forth allows me to see constantly the Lord’s safety over me. But once I arrive, even along the way, it is in music and my special time in His lap or arms that give me the sense of His wonder, Rescue, Delight! He rescues me constantly from the pit and places me on higher ground and thoughts of His glory! I loose myself in good Christian songs to break through sometimes, though I should find this in His Word, there is something that reaches me deep inside when He comes through the message of a song or a blogger! Thank you, Janis!
I will follow Him, beautiful song. He has rescued me many times. Thank you Jesus.
Janis – God rescued me from some “prodigal wandering” and brought me home to His arms, His heart, and His blessings!
He is SO GOOD!
