In this world that we live in, there are many voices and many distractions that vie for our attention. I say that because it is one of life’s greatest blessings when we can cut through all of that to receive what is the very best gift in all of life and that is this “Jesus is singing over you in delight of you.” The words spoken by Zephaniah to the the Daughter of Zion (Israel) summarizes the heart of our Father for us all as His children of faith as well:
“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
Zephaniah 3:17 NIV
We can be glad and rejoice with all our hearts, precious saints, for the Lord has rescued us and forever delivered us from the enemy of this world. We need never again fear any harm from him!!! YAY!!! WOOOHOOO!!! SWEET FOREVER VICTORY IS OURS ALWAYS BY WHAT JESUS HAS DONE FOR US!!! Because our Father has forever defeated the enemy, He tells us:
“Do not fear, O Zion, do not let your hands hang limp.”
Zephaniah 3:16 NIV
It is our Father’s heart to comfort His people as in the example of what He spoke through Isaiah to them:
“Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”
Isaiah 40:1-2 NIV
Truly for all of us as our Father’s kids of faith in Christ’s finished work on the cross for the sins of all who believe on Him as their Savior, our need to put forth hard service to earn salvation has been completed by Christ for us!!! Our sins have all been paid for by the price of His life given for us so that we are now heirs into His forever royal kingdom family, receiving all the glorious riches of Christ Jesus!!! Whooop!!! Whooop!!! Whooop!!! Now that is very good reason why we can wear a big smile on our faces, put a hop in our skipping along through life today while hanging onto His righteous right hand that is upholding us as we travel the adventures of life with Him as our King!!! We can sigh in relief and have the joy of His love for us in our hearts, too, knowing that our sweet Jesus is with us, has and will continue to save us, is delighting in us, wanting us to be quieted down, settled down by His love for us and His rejoicing over us each one as His beloved children of faith!!! Oh now all that just blesses my heart and makes me smile big!!! I hope it does you, too, dear one!!! He loves us each one oh sooo special as His great big royal family!!!
Bask in His love and presence with you wherever you are today!!! There is nothing in all this world as precious as the love of Jesus with us!!! If that ole enemy comes knocking on the door of your heart, our Father just says to resist Him and submit to Father’s power in you, taking captive our thoughts to what is of Jesus!!! Oh that just sends the enemy fleeing and enables us to keep at rest and in peace in the love and truth of our sweet Father who loves us forever with unfailing, unconditional love!!! Love this song here. Enjoy Jesus’ love each second of your day!!! 🙂 He is for YOU!!!
