Zephaniah: God’s Joyful Song

When all the redeemed peoples of the earth gather together at the throne room of heaven, the heart of God will be filled with joy. And this joy will be so great that God himself will burst forth in song. Zephaniah 3:17:

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

When lost sheep return, God rejoices, for there is nothing sweeter than the salvation of one more lost soul. This is why the father throws a party when his prodigal son returns. When something that is lost gets found, we rejoice. And God is no different. When His sheep return, He rejoices and sings. This must be the greatest sound in the universe, the singing of our Sovereign God.

I can’t wait to hear that song.
