What Happens When God Sings?
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. ~ Zep. 3:17
When God speaks what happens?
Stars are born.
Planets are spun into their orbit.
Humanity is made alive.
The universe comes into existence.
Think of it… Stars, billions of times the size of the earth are spoken into existence by an almighty, incomprehensible, all powerful God. Stars, so powerful that they would destroy us and our planet and our sun in an instant, if they were not held in their place by the laws of physics spoken into existence by God.
He SINGS over us!
What happens when God sings?
If his speaking will birth all that is and ever will be, just imagine the power of his singing!
When I read this passage I am simply dumbfounded that he would sing over me. He exults, he rejoices, over my good with all he is. If you are wondering if God really does love you, if you do not feel worthy of his love, just look at this verse in Zephaniah.
He sings over you!
You were lost, and he is the mighty one who saved you and he loves you and he sings over you. Our Father in Heaven really does Love his children! He exults over us! When we are discouraged or afraid or unsure or anxious or worried or stressed, look to his love and be quieted. Let us sing His praises! What better reason to sing than that the Lord, the God of the universe who spoke you into existence, sings over you?
“I can’t comprehend your infinitely beautiful and perfect love
Oh I’ve dreamed dreams of majesty as brilliant as a billion stars
But they’re never bright enough after all
You are Holy
Holy, Holy, Holy!”
