Zephaniah 3:17. 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.
Do you ever think of God that way? Have you ever thought, woohoo, the Lord is going to rejoice and sing over me ~ He is so excited to see me this morning? I have to admit, that hasn’t typically been my first thought in the morning and yet, why not? When your children wake up in the morning or your grandchildren show up at your door doesn’t it bless your heart to see them? When there have been times when you haven’t seen them for a while, don’t you get excited to see them and talk with them? God feels the same way about you!
Okay, so let’s face it, I have had some mornings where He has probably said out loud, “oh dear…… she’s awake” and has sent multitudes of angels out to help set me on the right path. My goal though is for Satan to be the one saying, “ohhhh noooo…… she’s awake!” Either way, God loves us and can’t wait to get you started on the right path today and He is excited to see you!
If you are struggling and hurting today, know that God loves you dearly and He wants to hold you and quiet you with His amazing love. I have a little bear that Noah benShea sent me and one of the quotes Noah says is, “God is never so near as He is when you feel all alone”. That is so true and so comforting to know that during those times when you feel as though you are all alone and the burdens you are carrying are so heavy that you feel you can’t even take one more step. God loves you, He cares and He wants to not only rejoice over you, but He also wants to rejoice with you. He will get you to the other side of all you face if you will just put it all in His hands and trust Him with it.
There are so many frightful things going on in the world today that it can be a scary place. Hold on to the fact that God is in your midst as you worship Him with your life. He will save you, rejoice over you with gladness and He will quiet you with His love! Hold on to the fact that He is in your midst when you serve Him with your whole heart.
So, hold your head high today, knowing He loves you and He is excited about you. Hold your head high like the Princess you are and were created to be.
