"Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne.
Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.
Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship,
for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord.
They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation.
They exult in your righteousness.
You are their glorious strength.
It pleases you to make us strong." Psalm 89:14-17 NLT
Most of us want to please the Lord. We desire to show him we love him. One of the things that pleases the Lord, is when we depend upon him for our strength.
There are so many demands that zap our strength. We try to put ourselves in position to be strong. But the greatest thing we can do to be strong is admit our weakness, and depend on Jesus. Not only does he give us the strength we need, but he delights in strengthening us.
