God Delights in You

“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)

Truth:  God delights in you

We all long to be delighted in — to have someone who knows us and enjoys us completely.  There is that deep craving to be truly loved.  The Lord put those desires within us.  He wants to be the one to meet those needs and fill those places.  Blaise Pascal called this the God-shaped vacuum.  No one but God can fill that deep place within you.

On Sunday, I had the joy and privilege of spending time with my friend’s precious son.  He is 2 and full of energy, joy and wonder.  His words are new and often hard to understand, but he communicates so enthusiastically.  I found myself hanging on his words longing to know what he wanted me to know.  We kicked a soccer ball over and over again.  Each time his face lit up with joy.  I felt genuine joy in his joy.  My heart felt full of love for this boy.  I delighted in him.

My delight in Lleyton is just a glimpse of God’s delight in you.  God’s love is perfect.  His experience of emotions are much greater than you or I could ever comprehend.  God displays His heart for you so beautifully in these words of Zephaniah:  “He takes great delight in you!”.

Today, take a moment to reflect on the fact that God delights in you.  He longs to hear your heart, all the words of your heart.  He desires to look into your face, to tell you that you are beautiful and that He has a good plan for your life. God longs to pour out His love into your heart. When He sees you, He feels joy — joy that burst into singing.  That is true love my friend.
