God Delights in you!

Today's Verse
"For the LORD delights in his people;
  he crowns the humble with victory.
Let the faithful rejoice that he honors them.
  Let them sing for joy as they lie on their beds."

Psalm 149:4–5

Encouragement for Today

Do you feel in your heart that God delights in you? This passage says that God actually enjoys who you are. He is thrilled with you as one of his people—especially as you trust in him humbly. That just makes God want to crown you with all kinds of honor and victory. Can you let this honor become a cause for rejoicing, even as you lie down for the night? Sweet sleep can come with this kind of meditation.
