Zephaniah 3:17

“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.” (Zephaniah 3:17).

Many things confront us in our days, things that bring discouragement, pain, frustration and anger. Lots of times we are reminded of our failures and sins, of our lack of control, of our frailty, our fears.

As Israel looked to their future God gave them wonderful promises – promises not based on what the future looked like from a human perspective. Our Father gives heavenly promises and if we take them to heart they will wipe away our momentary troubles:

“He is always 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.”

Can blessings this great be found anywhere else in our lives? Is there anything as rich and full as these?

Dear brothers and sisters, find your peace and delight in Him, He’s good for it! “What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32).
