Is it Possible?

Is it possible, that such poor, depraved, unworthy creatures can be the objects of Jehovah's delight? Yes! The infinite love of God has been fixed upon us from eternity! Because He loved and chose us, He sent His only-begotten Son to die for us! He sent His Holy Spirit into our hearts to regenerate us!

Every believer, though his faith is weak, his fears are many, his corruptions are strong, his troubles are great, and his temptations are sore is the object of Jehovah's delight!

Let us therefore endeavor to pass through this day, yes, and every day believing and realizing:
"I am Jehovah's delight! I am the object of His highest love! I am the subject of His sweetest thoughts! I am His portion for evermore!"

O incomparable privilege!

Wondrous source of comfort, holiness, and love!

You have more cause for gratitude than an angel!

[James Smith]


Isaiah 62:4 ... Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.

Jeremiah 31:3 ... The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

John 17:23 ...  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.❤
