He Takes Delight in His People

 Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
 For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
~ Psalm 149:1-5

For the Lord taketh pleasure in His people. The NIV says "For the Lord takes delight in His people." This should make us dance with joy and sing His praises. Although this was written to the Jews it applies to us as Christians as well, for we have been adopted into His family, and are His children.

What a blessing!
