The Lord reminded me of something very obvious this morning that I hadn’t really thought about it and that is that He has chosen to spend eternity with us, and I thought, ‘Gosh, God must really like me if He wants to spend eternity with me. I don’t mind spending a day with some people and there are some I could even spend a week with and one person I’m happy to spend my life with, but that’s limited. Just to reinforce it, I don’t read Psalm 149 every morning, but I did this morning, and verse 4 says that ‘God delights in His people’, ESV ‘God takes pleasure in His people’. So if you’ve ever had doubts about how much God likes you, He wants to spend eternity with us. Which I think is fantastic.
