Singing 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. - Zephaniah 3:17

Just imagine God singing over you in delight. This Mighty Warrior happily singing a lullaby or love song as you sit in his lap. That's exactly what the prophet Zephaniah says God is doing. 

The hard part is to actually get it.  Sure, you can read those words, but do they sink in? Can you experience God singing in delight over you? That's an amazing image, and it's true! God delights in you that much! That's the sort of knowledge - head, heart and body knowledge - that Jesus had of the Father's blessing. That's what allowed him to go through each day at peace, resisting the pull of the false self and the temptations of the devil. And that's what's going to help you as well.

So today, pick one of your favorite worship songs and play it, sitting quietly and letting God sing his love over you. Feel free to sing back to God as well :-)
