Jumping for Joy

"For the Lord delights in you....
As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, 
So shall your God rejoice over you."  Is 62:4-5

Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!  (Phil 4:4).  I was so excited when I read the verse above! God delights in you!  He rejoices over you like a groom rejoices over His bride!  So, I wanted to go further on how the Lord delights in you.....

"The Lord Your God is in your midst
the mighty One will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness.
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.  Zeph 3:17

The Lord your God is in your midst.....He is with you!
The mighty one will save....He is our liberator, He delivers us, He sets us free!  

He will rejoice over you with gladness....You make the Lord happy, He is literally "jumping for joy" as the Hebrew word for rejoice used here means "to leap, to spring in gladness".   

He will quiet you with His love....give you peace, to make silent....a stillness, peacefulness that only comes from resting in His love. 

He will rejoice over you with singing....He delights in you so much that He bursts out into song! 

Your God delights in you today!  Rejoice and rest in His love dear one!!!

Sue,
Your Blog is such an inspiration to me!! I had to silence the music until I was done reading because when I hear these songs, I want to run and dance and rejoice! Thank you for all of the energy you put into this. Selecting the songs and everything else that goes into this!!! I love you, Dear Sister!!
