I heard Mike Bickle share this today from Isaiah 62:4
No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate, but you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah, for the Lord will take delight in you and your land will be married.
Hephzibah means “my delight is in her”. God loves the world, but He likes – he delights – in his children. And he doesn’t wait for us to grow to maturity before He likes us, He likes us even as we grow into maturity. In fact, our knowing He delights in us is what helps us grow.
Know that you are not only loved, but that God actually likes you!
