Day Thirty-two – הַיּוֹם שְׁנַיִם וּשְׁלֹשִׁים לָעֹמֶר
The LORD your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zeph 3:17
“Our God sings!”
The Bible communicates many things about God. We learn about Him through the narratives that place His actions, words, and wonders into real time and space. It isn’t always easy to take that information and realize that much of the truth revealed is true today. The names and places are different but God hasn’t changed.
Is it hard for you to imagine and realize that God could love you so much that He would “rejoice over you with shouts of joy?” How well do we recognize His expressed love towards us?
• Lord, in what ways does my negative self-talk cause me to be deaf in hearing Your expressed joy towards me? How can I learn to know You better in this regard?
• We often recognize people by telling them,”Good job! or Well done!” How might we explain God’s approval to a new believer?
• Read the first few chapters of Genesis together with a group. Did God really mean it when He said “Very good” in regard to His creation? What should that tell us about His heart and our mission(s) in the life time he has given each of us to live?
