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.
God is with us!
That's the great message of the story of Jesus. That's the message of hope Zephaniah gives the defeated people of God. God is among us. He is mighty to save. He loves us. He delights in us. He stills the storms of our hearts with his loving touch. He sings us songs of joy.
God longs to be close to us and invites us to draw near. What will your response be?
Father God, strengthen me as I turn away from evil and seek to draw near to you.Thank you for being near. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
