He Delights in the Welfare of His Servant

“Great is the LORD, who delights in the welfare of His servant.” (Psalm 35:27).

The God who made the heavens and the earth has great joy and exuberance when things go well for His children who serve Him. This is an astounding truth. God does not simply seek our welfare, pursue our good, or think it nice when we are spiritually thriving. Rather, our welfare prompts joy in Him. He is not ambivalent about our good.

The King James Version says that God “hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” Thus, when we reflect on our circumstances, on the state of our souls, we can bank on the fact that it gives God pleasure, delight, joy, gladness, satisfaction and great happiness to see that our souls prosper. And our souls prosper when God puts down the enemies who would draw us away from Him and grants us contentment in Christ.

So let us pursue the knowledge of the God who delights in our good.
