Simply Delightful

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 (NIV)

How amazing is it to think that God delights in you?!  Sometimes I read this verse and I think, really??  Are you sure you’re talking about me??  The answer is always a resounding YES!  

It doesn’t take much for God to reveal to me time and time again that He is always with me—He is mighty to save me, He delights in me, He is more than able to quiet me with His love, and He rejoices over me with singing—talk about unfailing love!

Lord, thank you for the way that you depict your love for us through Zephaniah 3:17.  What an incredible promise that I can lean on and cling to daily.  The thought that the God of the universe delights in me and loves me is sometimes too much to handle.  Lord, I’m humbled by the way that you love me because I know I don’t deserve it, but I praise you that in the midst of my sin, you still lavish me with your love.  With all that I am—heart, mind, and soul—I long to love you!
