“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (Zephaniah 3:17 NLT)
The Lord Himself will remove his hand of judgment, disperse Israel’s enemies, and come to live among his people. He will give them gladness. Zephaniah points out that gladness results when we allow God to be with us. We do that by faithfully following him and obeying his commands. Then God rejoices over us with singing. If you want to be happy, draw close to the source of happiness by obeying God.(Tyndale Study Bible)
God lives among us. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, His presence can be felt daily through the Holy Spirit. God only intends the best for us.
What we often don’t do is take the high road that He has made for us. Yes, there is a price to pay, but be faithful and the rewards will be great.
His love surrounds us daily and gives us the calmness to do what is necessary. We should have no fear as He is with us always. When the music stops, the anointing stops. The music will rejoice over you.
Choose the right road and God will rejoice with us.
“Dear Lord, I pray that You will show me the high road. I pray that I will do just as You do. I pray for joy and Your Grace. I thank you for the crossroad. In Jesus name. Amen”
