Psalms 147:9-10 God’s Pleasure

Psalms 147:9-10 (KJV)
He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.

Is it our honest desire to be the delight and pleasure of our God? Do we truly want to please Him in our lives? This passage may cause some a fair deal of concern. God is not excited and pleased with strength. He has little joy in the works of men – what we may or may not accomplish. These may have their place, but not in relation to our relationship with God.

  • He delights not in the strength of the horse
  • He takes no pleasure in the lags of men

The Bible is quite specific.

  • God takes pleasure in them that fear Him
  • God takes pleasure in those that hope in His mercy

To my readers:
