One of the great things about God is that He loves us with a love that is real and unconditional. I have always found that to be astonishing. Why would the God of the universe care for me and more than care, take delight in me? Why would one such as He love one such as I? And no matter how hard I try to understand it, I am always left breathless. When I read, Zephaniah 3:17 which states
"The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
I just sit back and think about why, God, why do You do it? You, the one that is without beginning and without end, the one that needs nothing to be complete, why do you take delight in me, in us? The only answer I can find is that You do it because You are a God of love. You are a God that cares so deeply for us that You created us and you wanted us to know it so you just told us, so we would never have to wonder. So thank you for delighting in me, and help me to delight in You.
