He delivered me because He delighted in me.

–Psalm 18:19 (NKJV)

I love to read the many descriptions of God in the Psalms and how He has provided for us.  He is our shelter and fortress, a place to hide from the enemy and a place to be replenished.  He is revealed as our shield, guide and comforter.  He is the one who gives us strength and sets our feet upon steady rock.

God is ours in companion sense, but also in all that He has created for our pleasure.  He is the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the breeze.  He is in the rain that nourishes the earth and causes seed to grow.  He is in the moon and stars as they declare the end of one day and hope for another.  God is in the birds that sit among the trees and sing, and in flowers that delight with rainbows of color.

God has given Himself to us in every way we could ever possibly need.  He delights in His children and has made His provision for us full and complete.   What an awesome and loving Father our God is!

Father, how grateful we are to find you revealed in so many ways.  Thank you for delighting in us.  We bless your holy name!  Amen.
