He will joy over thee with singing…
Joy in this sense is to spin round while under the influence of violent emotion. (Strongs: 1523)
I can’t picture that. I’ve tried…
But imagining God Almighty spinning round with joy over His ransomed ones is something far beyond the reaches of my imagination.
Part of that may be because I can’t imagine myself spinning round with joy… (I guess maybe I value calm and under control a little too much).
But I’ve decided that I don’t really need to be able to picture this.
It is enough to know.
I’ve been pondering this phrase for the last week. It still boggles my mind.
To rejoice like that….
Must mean that God loves… only loves.
