How can I make God happy?

Deuteronomy 30:10“The Lord your God will delight in you if you obey his voice and keep the commands and decrees written in this Book of Instruction, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and soul.”

Psalm 37:23The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.

Proverbs 15:8The Lord . . . delights in the prayers of the upright.

Zephaniah 3:17For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.

Can finite, sinful human beings truly bring joy and delight to the Lord, the creator of the universe? God says yes. He created you because he wants to have a relationship with you, to delight in being with you. But you must also want a relationship with him.
