By now, I’m sure many of you know that one of my all time favorite verses in 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.”
It’s an incredible promise that assures us of how God cares for us and how He loves us. This verse is one of my lifelines when I’m scared, praying for miracles, insecure, overwhelmed, anxious, and in need of love. It’s kind of like a one stop shop. I take so much comfort in claiming the truths contained in this one small verse.
1. My God is with me.
2. My God is mighty to save.
3. My God delights in me.
4. My God quiets me with His love.
5. My God rejoices over me.
If you’re looking to memorize some scripture, this one is a great place to start. Write it on an index card and place it by your mirror, in your car, or at your desk and be confident of who God is and how He loves and cares for you.
Yesterday I went running (yahoo!!) and the following song came on my I-pod based off of this verse. The youtube video is a little rough, but the sound is great. Enjoy!
