Have you ever thought about how much God rejoices over you? The Bible makes it clear that He is delighted over you and He loves you. He not only loves you but He rejoices over you. To rejoice is to feel and show great joy or delight. Now take that definition and apply it to your relationship with God. His relationship with you is heavily filled with joy and delight about you. He sees you with joy. His eyes see the color of love when He sees you. It doesn’t matter what you look like, who you are, where you are from or what you have done. His vision of you is always tainted by Love. His love for you keeps you in the forefront of His thoughts. Think about how amazing it is to be loved by Someone who also feels joy over you. You bring so much joy to the Lord by just being you. You are a delight in God’s heart. When was the last time you were joyful and delighted about someone? God is delighted and joyful over you all the time. Today I want to remind you that God rejoices over you, friend. Take comfort in how He sees you.
There is more love in the Lord than the entire earth could contain. It is mind-blowing and hard to realize. We are good at thinking of love in human terms. However, we are limited by our understanding of God’s love. God’s love transcends what we know. It is one of my prayers to get to know more of God’s love. I want to be permeated with a bigger dose of His love so I can understand Him better and share Him better. God holds us in His heart. He holds all of us. If we could comprehend that, life would be so much better. They say that kids who know they are loved grow up to be good people and well-rounded citizens. It’s time we lived with the knowledge deep down inside that God loves us the way we are. He calls all to repentance and He loves us. When we wake up, when we go about our day, when we go to bed. He loves us. When we are good or when we are bad, He loves us. When we are having a good day, when we are having a bad day, He loves us. His love never stops and it has no end!
You are someone to rejoice over. You are someone the Lord rejoices over. He is so in love with you that it makes Him joyful to spend the day with you. You might not be aware of Him all day but He is aware of you every second of every minute of every hour of every day. There isn’t a minute that He doesn’t rejoice over you. He sings over you. He is so happy to have you. So happy you exist. To Him you are perfection. You are a flawed masterpiece made perfect by the blood of His Son. The Spirit of the Lord said in His Word that He sings over you. How beautiful is that?! It is a love song. It is a song of joy and a song of peace. Next time you are going through a rough patch, remember that the Lord is singing over you. He is so delighted and joyful over you that He is singing. Let His song break the sadness and the pain. Jesus is rejoicing over you. Stay encouraged!
