He Sings!

I promised you a blog post today, & it almost didn't happen. I started writing & kept going from one subject to another. And that's ok, because i have topics for later dates. But i have learned that when something sticks in my head, or in this case, a Bible verse that i keep going back to, then it's God trying to tell me something & i need to listen. So here it is.....

"The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save.
He will delight in you. He will quiet you with His love.
He will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

"The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save." Now that's profound in itself! But what is really amazing is that the all powerful God, who created Heaven & Earth & everything in it "will delight in you". He takes delight in little ole ME? (Well, i'm sure He doesn't all the time.) And He delights in little ole YOU! Think about that for a while; really ponder it.

And "He will quiet you with His love." Now i have experienced this more than once. Thankfully, i know the peace that passes all understanding & it is truly amazing. In Revelation 21:4, God promises "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain...." He'll quiet you & comfort you.

And if that isn't enough, "He will rejoice over you with singing". Now bear with me here. I am a hopeless romantic & i love chick flicks. And as an older hopeless romantic, i still love watching older chick flicks & musicals. Now i'm not an over the top Elvis Presley fan, but i liked his music & i still like watching his movies. I loved when he sang to the girls he was after. He would serenade them with such beautiful love songs & he girl would swoon. It was surely true love.

God's love is not surely, but most definitely the purest, truest love. He delights in us so much that it causes Him to sing. He serenades us! Zephaniah 3:17 is a great verse to commit to memory. And if anytime, you're feeling unloved, not sure of yourself, or just down, remember God loves you so much that He can't help but sing about it!
