A Bit of Encouragement…

I love, love, love this Bible verse! I had never been real familiar with the book of Zephaniah, but I discovered this verse several years ago and have been so encouraged by it since. It quickly became one of my favorites. Then I found this beautiful design using this very verse on Pinterest and knew I had to share it with my readers. So, if you’re down for any reason or just had a cruddy day, there’s some wonderful promises in here. It’s a great one to memorize and place somewhere you can see it often. 

The first point is that the Lord your God is with you. That means whoever you are, wherever you are, and whatever you’ve done, the Lord your God is with you! 

The second is that He is mighty to save. We can’t even fathom how mighty and powerful God is and He’s the ONLY one who can save us. No other person or thing can do so.

Thirdly, He takes great delight in us. What an awesome and humbling feeling to know that the Creator of our universe, the Omnipresent, Omniscient God, actually takes delight in me. And in you! Did you know that? I’ll write it again–God takes delight in YOU and loves you beyond measure.

Fourth–He will quiet us with His love. Oh, the peace that can only come from God! It’s incredible. There are so many things in this world that can get us all riled up, stressed out, and fearful. How wonderful it is to feel God’s love and the peace that comes from knowing He is in control. He quiets us with His love. I definitely need some” quiet” from Him and I’m sure you do as well.

Last, but not least. He will rejoice over us with singing. Have you ever had anyone sing to you? If so, wasn’t it a good feeling? Imagine God rejoicing over you with singing!

Oh friend, I hope this brought you a bit of encouragement today as it has done for me. God bless!
