What Does God Take Delight in?

God Delights In or Takes Pleasure In.
Psalm 147-10-11; Micah 7:18-19; Philippians 4:17-19 
AMP, classic edition
I thought to myself, “What does God take delight or pleasure in?” So I went in search of what God delights in and I came across the above scriptures. In Psalm 147, I found that God delights in those who fear Him and put their hope in his mercy and loving kindness.In Micah 7:18-19, I found that God takes delight in showing loving kindness and mercy to His people. He also shows compassion and will cast our sins into the depths of the ocean.
In Philippians 4:17-19, Paul mentions that gifts that he received from Epaphroditus that the Philippians had sent him. Paul referred to them as a fragrant offering and sacrifice that God welcomes and in which He delights. Therefore, God delights in offerings given to the benefit of those who are in service to Him.
What does this mean to me? In order to delight my God, I am to reverently and worship fully fear Him and put my hope in His steadfast love and mercy. Receive His loving kindness and the fact that He will remove my sins to the depths of the ocean. In gratitude for what God has done for me, give cheerfully to aid those who serve God. I know that according to Zephaniah 3:17 God takes delight in me and rejoices over with singing. I do desire to bring delight and pleasure to my God and King.
Psalm 147
10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
    nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,
11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,
    in those who hope in his steadfast love.
My Prayer: Dear God, may all I do and say bring pleasure to You. I give You praise for Your loving kindness and mercy for You have removed my sins to the depths of the ocean. Forgive me, Father, when I fall short. Amen.
