God loves you, my sweet friend.
Do you have any idea how much?
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
~Zephaniah 3:17, ESV
The Lord Your God is In Your Midst
Oh, the beauty of this promise. The fulfillment of the longing birthed in the Garden and of hundreds of prophecies since that moment. For the dwelling place of God to be with man.
The Lord Your God is The Mighty One Who Saves
Your God is not just strong, but might unto salvation. His purpose toward you is salvation. He loves you and your salvation will allow you to be with Him.
The Lord Your God Rejoices Over You
His heart is glad for you! He rejoices over you. You are the object of His affection and gladness.
The Lord Your God Quiets You
Other translations interpret this to say that God calms your heart with His great love for you. Perfect love casts out fear. And you, my sweet friend, are loved by God with a perfect love that will quiet you.
The Lord Your God Exults Over You
He takes pride and joy and His heart lifts for YOU. You: the object of His longing, His love, His pleasure, and His life. You literally are a song in His heart.
You are loved so beautifully.
Take a moment and let it wash over you. Let God’s love for you overwhelm you and call to your heart.
