LORD taketh pleasure in his people:

Psalm: 149. 4.
For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

The Lord taketh pleasure in His people:”

We don’t often think about the Lords pleasure, but being made in His image, it shouldn’t be hard to imagine.

Do we not take pleasure in our children?  Do they have to do something note worthy for us to delight in them?


Not at all, seeing them joyful, carefree, excited gives us joy, knowing they are safe, healthy, happy.  

It is no different for God and His children.  Us.

Psalm 35:27
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”

Psalm 103:21
King James Version (KJV)
Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

Psalm 147:11
The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

The Lord loves us and wants us to prosper, not just financialy, Spiritualy, phycicaly, emotionaly…..in all areas of our lives.

It pleased Him to send His Son.  That we might be His.

Isaiah 53:10
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.”

His pleasure is us…He would have us all be His.

Ezekiel 18:23
Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?”

Ezekiel 18:32
For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.”

God takes pleasure in us.  Are we full of His peace and joy?  Are we walking toward or with Him?


Are we holding His hand, walking in the way we should go?  Give God pleasure, love Him, Praise Him, spend time with Him.
