God Rejoices Over You
“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.”
What a beautiful reminder that God is not a distant deity who created the world and then stepped back, but He is a loving Father who is actively involved in our lives. He is our protector, our Savior, and our source of joy. We can take comfort in the fact that God delights in us and rejoices over us with singing. This should give us confidence and hope, knowing that we are deeply loved by the Creator of the universe.
- Psalm 18:2 – “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
- Zephaniah 3:20 – “At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes,” says the Lord.”
- Romans 8:38-39 – “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Let’s Pray: Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for your love and presence in our lives. We are grateful that you are not just a distant God, but a loving Father who is actively involved in our lives. We pray that you will help us to trust in your protection and provision, knowing that you are our Mighty Warrior who saves. Thank you for delighting in us and rejoicing over us with singing. We pray that we will be able to live in the fullness of your love and grace and that we will be a reflection of your love to those around us. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
BUT GOD SHOWS HIS LOVE FOR US IN THAT WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.
