The Lord your God among you is powerful— he will save and he will take joyful delight in you.” Zephaniah 3:17 (a) (International Standard Version)
Run to Him when you are worn out and weary; run to Him when your heart is overflowing with a joy too grand to be contained. Bring the song and every moment’s celebration; bring the sorrow; the disappointment; the pain.
Your God, strong and powerful, is big. Bigger than anything that could ever come against you and He is mighty to save. Author and finisher of your faith, He is the One Who rushes in when the whole world turns away. At all times and in every season, with presence and with promise, He is there for you.
There is no situation that He is not with you in. No circumstance He is not aware of and intimately involved in on your behalf. If it is broken, He will fix it; lost, it can be restored. And when the healing comes, the shouts of joy will and thanksgiving will come too!
Curl up chosen one, in His arms of redeeming love. Let every weary weight that you are carrying fall away, for He is holding them all in His capable hands already, just as He is holding you. In the saving and the singing, He is the One Who will lift you up, and carry you through!
Lord God of the Angel Armies, come and save me today. Save me from fear, from unbelief, from perfectionism, from the pain. Save me so that I may love You, in the beauty of Your holiness—that I may dance in Your presence and hear Your sweet song of love again!
Let me feel Your delight Lord, even on the worst of days, for You are my soul’s celebration, my strength and my stay.
In the blessed Name of Jesus my Redeemer, I pray.
