He Sings Over Me

Posted: July 30, 2015 in Uncategorized

I recently heard a song while I was working that said “You sing a melody over me,” so I asked a friend of mine if God should be singing a melody over us, or if we should be singing a melody to Him.  We thought about it for a minute and my friend said doesn’t scripture say He sings over us? “I think so,” i said, so I did what any God fearing American would do in that moment…. I Googled it! This was the very first thing Google showed me.

The Lord your God is in your midst,
    a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

Zepheniah 3:17

How beautiful is that scripture? One thing we tend to forget is that indeed our Lord God is right here with us.  He hasn’t forgotten us and He never will, He is right here with us walking through this life with us every step of the way.  The beautiful thing about or God is that He’s already walked where we are walking, He’s been through the temptations, the struggles and life in it’s realest form.  He’s been there and done that, and we can trust Him because of it.  Not only is God with us, He is a Mighty One who WILL save.  Most of us know how to be saved, but we should really slow down and think about our own salvation experience and what God has brought us out of. He has pulled us from death to life and because of this very thing it should lead us to worship Him, our Mighty Warrior!! The scripture doesn’t say He might save, but He can and WILL save.  We just have to call on Him.  How great is our God?

The scripture moves on to say that he will rejoice over you with gladness and will quiet us by His love.  I have often thought of God as a God sitting on His throne just watching my every move and waiting on us to mess up.  This isn’t the case at all from this scripture, can you picture God rejoicing over us with gladness? If we are His, He is glad and He rejoices in the fact that we are His sons and daughters.  Could you imagine how much He rejoices over us when we live our lives the way He has called us to live them? When we seek His face, live out of obedience to Him and glorify Him in all we do, I can only imagine he rejoices even louder! Even when we are at our worse, I can imagine God looking at us through the Saviors eyes and says “He’s still mine” or “She’s still mine,” and I love him/her. Those times when we get all bent out of shape picture our Father rejoicing over us and quieting us with His love.  We seek so many things in this world to give us pleasure and peace, when we should look to the perfect one.  His love will quiet our souls and give us rest.  We can rest in the thought that He is truly watching over us, and not just watching, but rejoicing.

Last but not least, this scripture says the God exults over us with loud singing.  We often think about singing to God songs of worship and songs of praise, and we should do this, but I have never thought about Him singing over me, and not only singing, but singing loudly!! Even when we walk out on God in disobedience He still sits on His throne singing loud songs over us, drawing us back to Himself.  While we sing songs of the world, our God sings a sweet lullaby, or a sweet song of worship over us, because he loves us, he protects us, he finds great joy and pleasure with us. This is amazing news! Whether you are new in Christ or a seasoned veteran this is great news.  We tend to lose focus on who God really is in our life and the truth is He is a loving Father that only wants the best for His kids.

Take a few minutes today just to stand in awe of all the God has done for us, and all He does for us that we never even see.  Worship Him, sing loudly to Him, give Him your heart and let Him work in you.  He loves you and Zepheniah 3:17 is proof.
