The Lord is With You

The Lord you 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

Take a moment and savor that verse. Read it. Read it again. Read it one more time!

Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

God takes delight in you! He rejoices over you with singing!

When my boys were little I loved the smile on their faces when I told them how special they are to me. It still seems to bring such peace to them to hear me brag on them. They seem to want to know my pleasure in them.

I find the same joy in my heart when I read this scripture!

The idea that God delights in me! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I don’t feel very delightful! Sometimes I wonder how I can even stand myself! Yet, God, the Creator, Sustainer, Lord Almighty, the Great I AM, takes personal delight in me! Me!

Picture this! God rejoices over you and me…enough that He does it with singing! What a wonderful testimony of the depth of our Father’s love!

As you lay down to sleep tonight, listen carefully for your Father’s tender voice, as He takes great delight in you and rejoices over you in song! Somehow I picture Him having a special tune…a unique lyric…words that are designed just for you.

The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save!

Are you listening? What do you have to worry about with a God like this?

  1. Beautiful post, Pastor Ron. A great reminder. An instant peace-giver. I love the idea that He has a unique song for each of us. That sounds like Him! I’m sure He does. Thanks for the evening devotional! Perfect.

  2. I have often felt as though I were too little to serve; too much maintenance to be of much use. When I read verses like this, I don't feel the smallness I deserve, nor the displacement I should have. I feel, instead, the freedom to move with power! The ability to reach out as far as my imagination can go! The Creator of the universe looks at me with pride. How can that not move you?
