The Unheard Love Songs of God

by | Apr 30, 2020 | Daily Faith

“The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.(Zephaniah 3:17)

He will rejoice over you with singing…

I remember the first time I sat down and read this scripture. It immediately became one of my favorites. For one, Zephaniah isn’t a popular book that I hear people expound on. So, this scripture to me is like a secret treasure buried deep in God’s word. Second, this book paints a more loving and compassionate picture of God in the midst of punishment and judgement.

God will save us, quiet us with His love, rejoice over us with gladness and singing. 

Reading this is a sure way to give me all the warm and fuzzy spiritual feels.

As I read this scripture rejoicing in this divine compassion from our awesome God, there’s this question that lingers in the back of my mind.

If God rejoices over us with singing, what exactly does His joyful songs sound like?

Is it a form of a tune? Maybe a hymn? Would I recognize this song? Is it a secret song for us that only He sings? Maybe it’s found in nature; the gentle breeze, ocean crashes, or birds chirping. I’m not exactly sure.

What I do know is this: God is in love with us so much that He rejoices over us. You and I give God so much joy that He literally breaks out in song. Can you imagine?


Despite negative thoughts, perceptions, myths, and misinformation you may have heard and have even been taught about God, He love us and has a beautiful song. And He’s singing it over us. If not now, we’ll hear it clearly in heaven.

      Yaaaayyyy!!! Zephaniah 3:17 gets me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Of course it speaks of God’s judgement but the compassion??? Amazing!!! Let me know your thoughts, Brenda!!!

        That’s the beauty of our God, His judgments are coated with compassion. They go together

        YES, they certainly do. But I find that many people only see (or choose to see) the mythical one-sided character of God: ONLY a harsh and uncaring taskmaster and punisher when clearly He’s not like that

    Zephaniah 3:17 is like, I would call it — a love-dance between God and us!!

    • LindseyCapron

      Excellent point. I love it. We rejoice over Him while He reciprocates His rejoicing over us. It’s PURE JOY!!! Like a dance party…That’s an awesome perspective

      • Hephzibah

        Let’s wait till we get to heaven and we can dance with our loving Saviour for the whole of eternity!! #prepareusOLord!

      • LindseyCapron

        AMEN!!! In the meantime, we’ll dance here on earth for Him now to prepare us for His and our face-to-face meeting!!!
