Take a moment to let the words of this scripture penetrate your mind and permeate your heart. The same Mighty God who created the universe is in your midst. As His child you are never alone. Your Heavenly Father is beside you every step of the way. He is always present in your life. When the going gets tough, He’s not going to bail out.
God loves you unconditionally. He celebrates and sings because of YOU. As a mom of three sons, I know how it feels to “rejoice” over my children. Be assured that my voice will be the loudest one cheering in the stands whenever there’s a home run, touch down or game winning basket. I also celebrate other accomplishments with them such as good grades on a report card, learning a new skill, or making the team. Truthfully, I rejoice over my boys each morning when I wake them up and each time they walk in the door from school. So if an earthly parent can have such joy over her children, I can’t imagine how much more our Heavenly Father, who created each and every one of us, rejoices over all His children.
When you are fearful, hurting or sad, He quiets you and comforts you with His love. Our All-knowing, All-seeing, ever present Lord knows your every need and thought. He senses the pain you may be feeling. He knows your circumstances and understands your fears with complete clarity. Just imagine His divine arms wrapped tightly around you, holding you, consoling you, reassuring you, soothing you and calming all your fears.
God’s word is true. So we can believe without a doubt that the Mighty One who will save is in your midst. He is rejoicing over you. He is quieting you by His love. And your Heavenly Father is singing loudly over you with joy. Acknowledge His presence in your life. Sense His joy and gladness over you. Feel His comfort, and listen for His loud singing throughout your day.
