Every child needs to know that God loves them. He loves them so much that He takes great delight in them.
The prophet Zephaniah wrote about how God feels about his children,
“He will take delight in you with gladness.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
God is always in a good mood and He always delights in His children. God never has an off day and even though He knows that His children aren’t perfect, He delights in them.
Ask your children if they believe that God delights in them? If not, why not? Read this verse together and subsitute their name for “you”. Have each child say it out loud. Have them say it 3 times. The first time emphasizing the word “delight”, the second time “their name”, the third time “gladness”.
Now pray and thank God that He is always in a good mood and delighting in them.
