The Lord Your God is With You
The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” ~Zephaniah 3:17
What a great way to start off a new year! The very thought of God taking delight in me is almost unbelievable.
This book specifically was written to the Israelites about 40 years before the take-down of Jerusalem by Babylon. But we can apply to our time, as well. God warns, disaster strikes, then God restores, a common pattern throughout history. We can look back and think, “why didn’t they listen”, but hindsight is 20/20. Why don’t WE listen? We don’t have prophets like Zephaniah, but we have God’s word that promises restoration and reconciliation!
I wonder if Hillsong’s Mighty to Save came from Zephaniah?
Well, everyone needs compassion
A love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Well, everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Savior
The Hope of nations
Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever, author of Salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
Have a blessed day!
