God delights in the well-being of His servant. —Psalms 35:27
If you ever doubt that God cares about your well-being; simply read this verse. He does. He cares about the details of our lives and how we are doing.
I was thinking this morning about how I was struggling in a certain area of my life. How it was nearly bringing me to tears. Then, this was the verse I happened to flip to in my little notebook. What a timely reminder that God cared how I was feeling and what I was going through!
Not only did it remind me that God cared about my emotional and physical struggles but it showed me that what He does for me is never dutiful. It is a joy. A DELIGHT.
Just as I delight to give gifts to my children or to surprise them with things in their life that I know will bring great joy and blessing to them … so does my Heavenly Father like to delight in me. He delights in answering my prayers. He delights in bringing victory over a long-prayed-out spiritual battle. He delights in handling the little details of my life – and the big. That’s how much He loves me.
Whether you are struggling with illness, job frustrations, financial strains, relationship stresses, location issues or anything else – please know that God can’t wait to delight you with solving, handling and blessing you in each one of those areas of your life. For He cares about your well-being. He knows when things are getting to be too much to bear, when you need encouragement, help, support and love. He knows just when you need to be carried or when you need a push.
So don’t despair. Keep the faith. Keep praying. Feel His love and His knowledge of your life. Know that in His perfect timing, He will bring resolution. And He’ll do it with delight.
