Zephaniah 3:17

17 The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

There is a lot packed into this one verse. This speaks of how deep God's love for us is. We have a God Who delights in us, Who rejoices over us! When we think of our sinfulness and how unworthy we are, that doesn't seem like it could be possible; who are we? But we remember God created us. He lovingly made man in His image. And He was mighty to save in sending Jesus to die for us. This deep love is beyond human understanding. Human reasoning or logic cannot make sense of it. But by the faith God has given, we believe it, count on it, and rejoice that our LORD rejoices over us.
