The strength of a horse does not impress him;
how puny in his sight is the strength of a man.
Rather, the Lord's delight is in those who honor him,
those who put their hope in his unfailing love.
- Psalm 147:10-11 (NLT)
We laugh when we look back in life at those silly times we've tried to impress people.
We often think that those days are long past. What about those times when we might have tried to impress God? Can you imagine impressing Beethoven or Back with our great rendition of Chopsticks? Why then do we think we have anything to present to God that would impress Him. The good news is, we don't have to impress Him so He will love us or continue to love us. His love is unfailing because of who He is., not who we are.
Father, I want You to delight in me because I trust and rely on You as the source of everything I am and need. I have no abilities or assets that will impress You or make You say, "Wow." I yield my today and all of my tomorrows to Your will for Your glory.
