God's Joy

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)
This is one of the great verses of God’s character expressed towards us. Most of us know that He is with us, that He saves us, and that He loves us. But there are two additional expressions that cause me to wonder:
He will take great delight in you.
That ought to help any Christian with a “poor self-image.” God delights in me greatly!
He will rejoice over you with singing.
Most of us love to sing praises to Him with joy. Here it tells us that He also sings with joy over us.
