How do you feel when you sing? (although I can’t carry a tune). I feel happy. My heart is lifted. My spirits rise. I feel closer to God.
The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Zephaniah is one of those Old Testament books we don’t read from very often. It’s odd then, to find one of my favorite Scriptures in this tiny book. Every time I read Zephaniah 3:17, I picture the Lord singing for me. His song adds another dimension to His incredible love.
Can you picture that for yourself? God singing for you? It seems like it should be the other way around, we should be singing for our God in meaningful praise and worship.
But He loves us so much that He rejoices over us, with singing!
The next time you feel a little down, recall that God sings for you, He rejoices over you. He loves you more than you can imagine!
Walk In His Light!
