“God Delights In His Elect”

Key Verse

  “Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles”(Isaiah 42:4).

Text — Isaiah 42:1-7


Gloriously revealed in our Bible text today as, ‘my servant,’ is the Messiah, Jesus Christ, whom Jehovah God delights in. The Messiah, though meek, lowly, righteous and mild, is courageous, and diligent to preach the gospel and bring light to the Gentiles. The prophesy of Isaiah in our text shows how God would bring judgment or gospel of deliverance by Christ to all held in captivity to Satan. God gave the Messiah the Holy Spirit in excess to preach, teach and deliver (John 3:34). All those bound by idolatrous traditions and all sinfull practices can be delivered by Him.

As God delights in Christ, so He delights in every Christian because we are joint-heirs with Him (Romans 8:17). God cares for His beloved children who stand out in character and obedience to His word. Do you as a Christian stay away from pollution and defilement? He will give you wisdom, understanding, and divine abilities in all you do. He will also honour and promote you as He did to Joseph, Daniel, Esther, Shadrack, Meshack, Abednego, and Christ’s disciples.


God cares for His beloved.


Be God’s elect for a delightful destiny.

Prayer for today

 Dear God, help me to obey you always, in Jesus’ name.
