“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Zephaniah 3:17 NIV
The concept of God’s delight for me blows my mind. I don’t delight in me. I wake up with a mental tally of all the things I’m NOT doing right and all the ways I am not loveable.
Yet God, who is perfect and holy, delights in me and he delights in you.
He is with you as you do really boring stuff like the laundry. He is singing songs of joy over you as you sort through the monthly bills wondering how you are going to make it. He is smiling when you smile and enjoying all your quirks throughout the day.
This reality has already been bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus. It is yours as you receive it, as you walk in it, as you think more about what God thinks of you rather than what you think of yourself.
Do you know He delights in you today?
Can you hear His joyful song over you?
May your ears be open to hear his song and your heart be enabled to experience his love.
Lift up your eyes to see and delight in your Savior because today my friend, he is seeing and delighting in you.
