In Zephaniah 3:17, the scripture says: "The Lord Thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing".
Joy! What a wonderful word! And when we experience joy in its fullness, words cannot describe how much it lifts our spirit and fills our souls.
Scripture tells us the Lord will rejoice over us with singing. Imagine that for just a moment. The Mighty Warrior and King, the Maker of all things, our Wonderful Savior and our Creator, will rejoice over us!
It is hard to imagine when we look at ourselves and realize how insignificant we really are, that the Lord would want to rejoice over us. The Psalmist had said "...what is man that thou are mindful of him?" - but God had said we are the "apple of His Eye".
Take a deep breath and take a moment to think of how much you are loved by God today. Everything may be going against you - but if you wait on the Lord - by the end of this day and every day to follow - you will see just how much He loves and cares for your soul.
In your heart say:
"Father, and Savior, I do not not know what this day will bring, but I know You are in control and that You LOVE ME so much and will see me through each day of my life until You return to take me home for eternity. Thank You Lord."
Then go out and face the day believing and knowing all will be well. Remember, all we are required to do is BELIEVE!
