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 currently having one of those hard times that seem like everything is just too much, too hard, or too impossible? This scripture reminds us that our God is with us as a warrior, fighting for us to bring victory in our difficult and seemingly impossible situations. We need to be reminded 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 knowledge of the reality of His loving presence with us. So, be encouraged with renewed hope and faith in His extravagant love for you. And know 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!
