but the prayer of the upright pleases him.
God rejoices and delights in a righteous believer. When he comes with praise and prayerful worship, this bring special delight to the Lord.
"Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord?
To obey is better than the fat of rams.
[1 Samuel 15:22]
God delights in our obedience and our willingness to listen and walk in His truth. Receiving God's Word and walking in the light of it, will bring us into rich and abundant blessing. God's will, nothing more, nothing less, nothing else, must be the deep desire of a child of God.
"Teach us, good Lord, to serve You as You deserve,
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not seek for rest,
to labour and not ask for any reward
save that of knowing that we do Your will."
~ The will of God will never lead you, where the grace of God cannot keep you ~
