Psa 41:11 “By this I know that you delight in me…”

Psalm 41:11

By this I know that you delight in me:
my enemy will not shout in triumph over me.

The KJV uses the word “favourest” instead of “delight in”.  Regardless, this is a jewel of Scripture poetry as it relates to assurance of salvation. God will not let the enemies of his children [ultimately] prevail.

Examine your life in Christ.  Where and by whom have your sins met their defeat?  Do you not see God’s favor and delight?  I ask again: Do you not see God’s favor and delight?  So what habitual transgressions remain?  It is a life long war of the most holy kind.  Yet the outcome is certain.  You will never hear your enemy’s cry of victory.
