Zephaniah 3:17

 
The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17

For those that call Jesus their Lord, and who have chosen to be followers of God, singing songs to the King of Kings is a blessed part of the Christian life. But did you know that God loves you so much that He rejoices over you with singing?

Let's park here for a moment and consider this verse. The Lord your God is with you. He's not afar off, He's not just within earshot; He is with you. In God's holy presence, we instantly recognize our lack of holiness, but no worries, because He is also mighty to save. It's love so powerful, that He placed all of your wickedness on His only Son, so that Jesus could pay the debt of sin you owe with His life. You are saved for good and new life is given to you freely through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In spite of your failings and your inability to earn God’'s grace by your actions or behavior, He takes great delight in you just as you are. And when life goes sideways and you begin to freak out, He will quiet you with His love.

Imagine, God is so happy to have you that He will rejoice over you with singing. Consider how far the Lord went just to have a relationship with you. The cost was very high, but God says that you are absolutely worth it.
