I rejoice over 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
he will rejoice over you with singing.
is with you. He has come to save you and He takes great
delight in your life. His song proclaims to the heavens
His undying affection towards you. Have you ever wondered
what Father's singing must sound like? I can only imagine!
I think of how Father quiets us with His love, the image
of a mother nursing her newborn baby comes to mind. It
is as if while nursing at the breast of God, Father (El
Shaddai, The Many Breasted One) sings a lullaby that soothes
our soul and brings us reassurance and a sense of belonging
(Isaiah 66:11). Each word lovingly expressed in a tender
voice that calms and quiets us in His love.
I think of how Father rejoices over us with singing, another
image comes to mind. I envision Father swinging us around
in circles, all the while bellowing His song of extreme
affection over us. The Hebrew word used here to describe
how Father sings is 'rinnah'. It means to express a ringing
cry, a loud shout, a proclaimation of extreme joy and
an expression of gladness.
is not ashamed of the love He has for us and He wants
the whole universe to know it. The next time you worship
the Father in song, remember that as you sing of your
love for Him, He in turn sings His song of love over you!
Can you hear Him singing?
Father, I pray that You would give me ears to hear Your
love songs over me. I pray that I would be able to silence
the busyness of my life so I could hear Your soothing
lullabies and Your bellowing melodies. Thank You for being
with me and for taking such great delight in my life that
You rejoice over me with singing. In the name of Your
beloved Son Jesus I pray, AMEN.
