The Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love. – (Psalm 147:11, NIV)
The Lord enjoys people who worship Him and trust in His faithful love. – (Psalm 147:11, ERV)
But His joy is in those who reverence Him, those who expect Him to be loving and kind. – (Psalm 147:11, TLB)
God is far greater than we can begin to grasp. He is both our loving Father and Almighty God. The Lord is worthy of all of our worship and adoration, and we ought to have a reverent respect full of awe and wonder at all that He is, has done, and ever will be. We bring Him joy and delight as we trust Him, and allow our hearts to hope in His unfailing love. Let every heart trust in His unending love as we offer our worship in reverent awe of who He is and how He loves.
To be the delight,
Of our Holy God;
We must trust His love,
With hope, stand in awe.
We need choose revere,
His power and might;
Trust unfailing love,
To be His delight.
God is always good,
And His love is true;
Let every heart hope,
In Christ, be made new.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us without limits, and for delighting in us when we trust in You with the reverence that is due. Forgive us for not giving You proper praise, or for questioning the character or nature of who You are, as Your love never fails. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would not place human parameters on Your nature or character, but instead, in reverence and awe, would recognize the enormity of Your unfailing, faithful love for all who call on Your Name. Show us how to love those around us in a way that models our reverence for You and the hope that we hold in Your love that never fails. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we worship You and trust in Your unfailing love. Amen.
Shout aloud and sing for joy. – Isaiah 12:6
