God’s pleasure

If you fear God and hope in His unfailing love, then you are giving God pleasure. It’s not the naming of stars that gives Him this pleasure but seeing lowly mankind choose to praise Him! – Teresa #pleasantandfitting

Psalm 147: 1-11 (ESV)

147 Praise the Lord!

For it is good to sing praises to our God;

    for it is pleasant,[a] and a song of praise is fitting.

2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;

    he gathers the outcasts of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted

    and binds up their wounds.

4 He determines the number of the stars;

    he gives to all of them their names.

5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;

    his understanding is beyond measure.

6 The Lord lifts up the humble;[b]

    he casts the wicked to the ground.

7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;

    make melody to our God on the lyre!

8 He covers the heavens with clouds;

    he prepares rain for the earth;

    he makes grass grow on the hills.

9 He gives to the beasts their food,

    and to the young ravens that cry.

10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse,

    nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,

11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,

    in those who hope in his steadfast love.
