Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of September 27, 2015


The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will renew you in his love; He will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 (NRSV)

Have ever had or are you currently in the midst of one of those difficult times that seems like everything is just too much, too hard, or too impossible? Sometimes the hard stuff feels so overwhelming when we feel abandoned, betrayed or all alone without any hope for help. This scripture reminds us that our God is with us as a mighty warrior that fights for us to bring victory into our seemingly impossible situations. We must remember that as our Heavenly Father, He delights in us and rejoices over us with gladness. He desires to renew our faith and strength in the reality of His loving presence. So, be encouraged with renewed hope and faith in His extravagant love for you. Be assured that the awesome Lord God Almighty is warring and rejoicing over you with gladness and shouts of joy to bring you into victory! Hallelujah! Yea God!
