Psalm 149:4

Today in my Bible reading this little part of a verse stuck out to me. It's in Psalm 149:4 it says "For Jehovah enjoys His people..." It's pretty cool that God not only loves us, He enjoys us. I think it's kind of like parents enjoying their children. Our daughter Brylea is 5 and she is just learning to swim. She is doing pretty good. She can now jump off the diving board and do a cannon ball (she calls it a canning ball) without any floaties. Pretty good for a 5 year old! It's so fun to watch my children learn new things. When I see them do something for the first time, my heart just jumps with joy and pride in them. Sometimes just watching them do pretty much nothing makes me smile. They are my kids and I really enjoy them. It's amazing to think that is how God is with us. He enjoys us, He loves to see us learning and growing. He is proud of us when we accomplish something, or learn something for the first time. He smiles just watching us because we are His kids.

There have been countless times when my kids mess up, and just before I'm about to "enlighten" them I get convicted about whatever I was dealing with spiritually. We've been given numerous instructions in the scriptures on how we should conduct every aspect of our lives, yet sometimes we continue to make the same mistakes over and over (just like our kids do until they finally hit some level of maturity where they can grasp whatever it is we've been trying to hammer into their little hearts and minds). Thanks and praise to God for His grace and mercy! The good Lord knows we need it!
