It’s wonderful to realize that God rejoices over us, takes delight in us. It’s not recorded that He takes such pleasure in the rest of His creation, only in mankind. He declares in Proverbs 8:31: “My delight was with the sons of men” (Prov. 8:31). Something about this creature, made in His image, makes him the object of God’s particular pleasure. The depth of His love for man explains the depth of His sorrow when mankind plunged into wickedness before the flood (Gen.6:5-6). He so loved the world of men that He gave His only Son to rescue us (John 3:16). We can’t take much satisfaction in ourselves because of our deep failures. Despite these, we can imagine God breaking into joyful song over us. “He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will renew you in His love, He will exult over you with loud singing (Zeph. 3:17).” All for Jesus, Richard
