The LORD… delights in those whose ways are blameless. — Proverbs 11:20

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

I am confident that the Lord will say, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” Why? Not because I’m perfect, but Jesus has forgiven and cleansed me and the Holy Spirit is working to perfect my behavior to match my standing before God. I don’t know about you, but I am thankful to know that we can bring the LORD delight. Just like our children can bring us delight. Just like a good dessert can bring us delight. Just like a beautiful sunset enjoyed with someone we love brings us delight.

My Prayer…

May my words and my actions bring you delight, O LORD, my God! You have done so much for me, dear Father, I want to bring you great joy! In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
