Joy Is A Verb

The word joy is used too many times in the Bible for me to count. We are to sing with joy, shout with joy, and dance with joy. Joy is a fruit of the Spirit. In Jesus our joy is made complete. We are told the joy of the Lord is our strength.

As a kid I sang that I’ve got that joy joy joy joy down in my heart. But here in Zephaniah, joy is a verb. The Lord will joy over you. You only joy over something if you really care about it. And the Lord joys over you.

  1. What comes to mind when you think of the word “joy?”
  2. In your own words, what does it mean for God to “joy over you?”
