But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. —Psalm 103:17-18

The first longing of the human heart is to have the assurance that we are enjoyed by God while still spiritually immature. To be enjoyed by God is a necessary part of living right. You cannot repent of or get free from this longing of the human spirit because God Himself placed it within you. The idea of being enjoyed by God is difficult for some to receive. Some say, “Maybe God will enjoy me in heaven, but never while I am on Earth.” Others admit that God may enjoy them on Earth, but only if they are as spiritually mature as the apostle Paul. But the truth is that God will enjoy us while we mature. The knowledge of this is a vital key to turning sincere desire into spiritual maturity.


Is it possible, dear God, that You enjoy me just as I am? That you enjoy my feeble attempts to become more like You, and that You actually could not love me more?

God enjoys us even when we are in the midst of our
immaturity and weakness.
