Day 5 - God Wants You Happy - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

Zephaniah 3:17 - (NIV1984)
"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 have spent a lot if time beating my self up for the things I ought not to have done, the sin in my life.  Before I was saved from my sin, I hardly noticed it; since I have been with Jesus, I keep looking over my shoulder waiting for "justice" that is promised for my sin.

Then I read Zephaniah 3:17 and realized I had missed the point.  God wants us happy.  That is why Jesus paid the price for our sin to begin with.  He fulfilled the justice requirement. 

I have many real issues and dangers in my life, and many more imagined ones, and then tend to make me think I must guard every aspect of my life.  Then I read Zephaniah 3:17 and realized that God will Guard Me.  He really wants us happy.

What I never understood was the degree of happiness God hand in mind for us.  He wants us happy so much he will Sing to Us.

Wow.
