Zephaniah 3:17 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.
I love this verse of scripture. Look at God’s love for his people! Think of it, Almighty God taking delight in you and rejoicing over you with singing! As a father takes delight in his child, God takes delight in us. As a new Dad passes out cigars exclaiming, “It’s a girl!” or “It’s a boy!” our heavenly father sings over us.
Can you see him quieting you with his love? When you are under duress, he comes to you, not loud and boisterously. He doesn’t yell, “Get your act together!” He says, “Come, let me love you. Rest in my love.”
