Zephaniah has some beautiful words about the Lord. He reminds God’s people of his love for them. Have you ever felt down or discouraged? Have people made you feel like your sense of worth is very low? Maybe at times in your life you have not felt loved by anyone? Life may not be what you want or wish, but please know God has never left you and he loves you.
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
God is with you. His is mighty to save. Like a proud and loving Father he rejoices over you with gladness. When was the last time you felt someone rejoice completely over you? His love can quiet the restless questions that keep us awake at night. His love for us shows us that he will always be with us. God will exult over you with singing. Our Heavenly Father sings over us for our comfort and his pleasure. God delights in you his child.
He will deal with things in his time, take care of the oppressors. He will gather the lame and outcasts. God flips the script changing the shame put on us by others, to praise from our loving Heavenly Father, the God of all creation. Never forget his love and delight for you.
