Beautiful Sounds

“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

In the Christmas song, “The Little Drummer Boy,” the question is asked, “Do you hear what I hear?” The song takes us through many beautiful sounds revolving around the Christmas story.

Did you know God makes beautiful sounds all year round? Do you hear what I hear?

In Zephaniah, one of the prophetic books of the Old Testament, we are told that God sings over us! The verse takes us through aspects of God’s character. He is ever-present. He is a Mighty Warrior in the spiritual battles on earth and in Heaven. God is happy when He sees and saves His beloved children.

Even when we mess up, His love doesn’t stop. In fact, He rejoices over us WITH SINGING. God sings. Now, that’s a beautiful sound despite any darkness or heaviness this life hands us. Next time God feels far away, stop to listen. We may not actually hear Him, but we can be certain that He is singing over us! Then again, our spirit may hear His song and our lives suddenly become brighter.
