A Sense of God’s Tenderness

The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

(Zephaniah 3:17 NIV)

A while ago, I began to meditate on this verse, which I had often overlooked while reading the book of Zephaniah. And while I couldn’t quite pin down the meaning of the verse, there was still something about it that grabbed my attention. I think that it has to do with the tender way that God treats His children. He takes great delight in us, quiets us with His love and rejoices over us with singing. I don’t think we meditate enough on the gentle and loving way that God wants to deal with us. Yes, we may have an idea of it but I don’t think we really get it. I didn’t, until I took the time to dwell on this verse, and I encourage you to do the same, so that you, too, can get a sense of the tenderness of our loving, heavenly Father.

God’s treatment of His children is profound.
