Memory Monday – Week 54

Zephaniah 3:17 has been on our fridge for a long time and I figured it was finally time to share it.

I think it’s so easy for us to misinterpret the abundance of love the Lord has for us. Many of us have a skewed understanding of what that looks like and a lot of that might have to do with our earthly parents. If they didn’t show us unconditional love, then we might not feel like our heavenly father loves us unconditionally. If that is a place you are right now, I encourage you to study this scripture and get freedom from that lie. He loves us so much that He delights in us and chooses to sing over us. The same way mothers sing over their newborn babies or small children, the Lord sings over us with His delight.

There are so many good translations of this verse that I had a hard time picking one. It’s really powerful to read through all the translations so I broke up the verse into 5 sections and have listed several different versions! My prayer is you read over these slowly and grasp the concept of how loved you are by Jesus!

  • The Lord God is with you // The Lord God is in your midst // The Lord God is living among you
  • He is mighty to save // His power gives you victory // A mighty one, a Savior // The Mighty Warrior who saves // He is a Warrior who can deliver
  • The Lord will take delight in you // He will take delight in you with gladness // He will exalt over you with joy
  • In His love He will give you a new life // In His love He will no longer rebuke you // He renews you by His love // With His love, He will calm all your fears // He will be quiet in His love
  • He will sing and be joyful over you // He will rejoice over you with singing // He shouts for joy over you // He will rejoice over you with joyful songs // He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy

    This is so the kind of verse that’s helpful to read when you miss loved ones that are no longer with you. I’m going through a lot of that right now, but knowing Jesus loves me always take a smidget of that pain away. Beautiful verse. 🙂

    I love this scripture! It’s one of the first ones I memorized (I made a “song” of it so I could sing it… things stick better with me in song.

    Such a powerful verse full of God’s love and promise.

    Wishing you a lovely week my friend.

    Such a beautiful reminder, Caroline! How precious that our Father sings over us as He holds us close in His arms! I don’t think we really comprehend how deep His love is for us. Thank you for this gentle reminder! Much love and many blessings to you. 🙂
