The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
As I read over Zephaniah this morning and pondered over the above verse, I could hear my 4 year old climbing up the stairs from the basement. He was lugging up his favorite garbage truck which happens to about the same size as he is! All the while he is singing “Jesus Loves Me”.
The God of the universe rejoices in song over you, says Zeph. 3:17!! How incredibly incomprehensible is that!! The Creator of the universe delights in you! No exceptions; you are loved more deeply than you can ever know by Him!
“Jesus Loves Me” is among my sons favorite song requests before nap time and so to hear him singing it back all on his own practically moves me to tears. If that is how I feel, how much more our heavenly Father when He hears us rejoice over Him in song, the song that He first sang over us!!
He is singing over you today, do you hear it? I pray that you do and so much so that His song moves you in the deepest part of your soul to know His love; and then that it pours right through and out so we can lift our praises up to Him! Come on, let’s sing it out together!
