Farm Wife Devotions: God Rejoices Over You!
Did you read that verse?
Read it again with me!
"Jehovah thy God is in the midst of thee, a might one who will save; he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love; he will joy over thee with singing."
Another version says, "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."
Yet another says, "The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing."
Is there any doubt left that God loves you?
He finds so much joy in us that He sings about us!
He literally forgets our past sins! A concept we so struggle with ourselves that it is hard to truly grasp this quality in God.
David says in Psalm 139: 17-18 "How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand..."
God's thoughts for us are not a thought in passing a momentary "Hey, I really like that gal!"
No! They are numerous, in depth, and laden with care for us.
