His Good Pleasure – 6/15/20

Rebekah Haile 

Philippians 2:13 …for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

  

When I find myself repeating mistakes, I’ll often think, “Lord, you must be so tired of having to teach me the same things over and over.” In reality, I think I’m tired of having to relearn them. God’s mercy and patience are the greatest of comforts to a weary soul. An even greater mystery is that He finds good pleasure working in and through mistake-repeaters. 😊 

 

Receive the Lord’s delight in you as His redeemed child. He rejoices over you with gladness (Zep. 3:17) and it is His good pleasure to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:32).
