I have recently started reading Bhagvad Gita As It Is by Srila Prabhupada and I felt really moved reading this particular paragraph.

Especially keep in mind the lines "He (Krsna) takes greater pleasure in His pure devotees Image
assuming the advantageous position of ordering Him than He does in being the giver of orders. Since He is master, everyone is under His orders, and no one is above Him to order Him. But when He finds that a pure devotee is ordering Him, He obtains transcendental pleasure,
