I learned this verse as a young man at Camp Sankanac. Zeph. 3:17 was the theme verse for thatcamp. That was about 40 years ago when Imemorized it in the KJV, “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee ismighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in hislove, he will joy over thee with singing.” ����������������������������������
Most of my clients would benefit greatly by putting bymeditating on this verse. To know thatGod takes great delight in you, that he rejoices over you with heartfeltsinging is a life changing thought. Ifyou are struggling with an unhealthy self-image, this verse will bring youhealing. Also the middle section of theverse where it says, “God will quiet our hearts with his love,” wouldgreatly benefit my clients who struggle with anxiety and fear. The NIV translates this section, “In Hislove he will no longer rebuke you.” Ponder the wonder of this verse today and be refreshed by God’senthusiastic love for you. u.
