“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)
Some thoughts are so powerful, they can change your life. Or at least they should. This passage is that way. If you can read, “He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing” and not feel special, not feel like God adores you, not be moved to gratitude and thankfulness for His attention toward you, then you need to read it again. If you can read, “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save you” and not feel secure, special and in a safe place, then you need to stop, ask God to speak to your heart, and read this verse over. Today’s verse can change your life, if you let it.
Who am I, Dear God, that You would shower me with such attention? And yet, even with my doubt and feeble faith, today I choose to believe You. I choose to believe that I am a delight to You and that You rejoice over me. Quiet my heart with Your love, help me see with my imagination Your smile of acceptance and sense Your warm embrace of love and hear my name in Your singing. In Jesus’ name. AMEN
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
God takes delight in me
Close your eyes imagining yourself in a quiet peaceful place. Breathe deep and exhale. As you relax, ask God to make you conscious of His presence. Let Him quiet you with His love. Picture God with you and hear Him say, “I delight in you.” A you sense His presence, hear Him rejoicing over you with singing. Praise Him for His love for you.
