Have you ever been given a verse for your birthday?
One of the precious gifts that I received yesterday was Zephaniah 3:17. What a treasure! Just like the priceless young woman who gave it to me. She wrote that she was praying these words over my life. And I am blown away by her thoughtfulness. Her message went on to say:
"Praying you feel his celebration and delight over your life more and more."
This present arrived the night before my birthday. A gift from a country eleven and a half hours ahead of the time here in Belize. I fell asleep contemplating this verse and awoke to the melodic sounds of much needed rain. God's singing was refreshing the dry earth and bringing with it a cooler temperature. Such a joy after the long hot days of the dry season that we have endured over the past few months.
I don't think that I am the only one who needs to feel celebrated and delighted over by Him. I think many of us need that. Just as she blessed me...I want to bless you. Isn't God's word powerful enough to bless and feed us all? It reaches out to where we are, touching our hearts, and filling our souls. His word is the spiritual DNA that transforms us to the core. If we give it room inside of us to do its work....it will rejuvenate us and make us fit for Him.
May you feel His celebration and delight over you more and more.
May He quiet your mind with His love
so that you can hear even the faintest notes of His glorious singing over you!
