Psalm 147:10-11 – His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner; but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.
Several sources indicate that the word that is translated as fear can also be translated as reverence. I find this helpful. God loves me as I am. What delights God is my worship and admiration and my trust in the unending love that only God provides.
Prayer: Loving God, we come before you in different shapes, sizes and colors. Some of us are in good places today while others of us are in not so good places. Thanks for loving all of us. AMEN.
