As the weekend drifts in and the sun shines outside, I pray you would know that you are delightful. That if you’d let Him, Jesus would gaze eye to eye with you and tell you how much He adores that you are His. Not because you had a great day or said all the right things. Not even because you have great faith or you’ve stepped out in humble obedience.
He adores you only because you are His. He is so pleased with you. And He’s so proud of you that He brags to the angels about how wonderful you are. Can you hear Him?
I don’t know where you are today. Maybe you’re having a glorious day full of all the blessings you’ve dreamed about. Maybe you’re waiting and wondering if this is it, this is all this one life has to offer. Maybe you’re at the edge of deep sorrow not really knowing how to step into the weekend without collapsing beneath the weight of your burdens.
No matter where you are, He sees you. He.Sees.You.
He sees your heart and your hopes. He knows your thoughts and your hang ups.
And He is so pleased with you.
Because no matter where you are today, He also knows where you’ll be tomorrow. He knows where you were yesterday. And you can never escape the sheer delight He has when He watches over you. He is drawn to you and longs to be near you.
I pray as you head into the weekend, you would know this. You would know that He is not upset with you, disappointed or ashamed that you’re His. Instead, He sees you, He delights in you, He rejoices in singing over you.
He is so glad you are His and does so love you.
The LORD your God is with you, the mighty warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.
