Isn’t it amazing being a Christ-follower? The joy that he brings is sometimes overwhelming. Open up your mouth and praise him! He has taken away the judgments against you!
Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! The LORD has taken away the judgments against you; he has cleared away your enemies. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall never again fear evil. Zephaniah 3:14-15
His kingdom is coming! Haven’t we prayed for that over and over again? I know I pray for it daily. Zephaniah 3 gives us a glimpse into what it will look like when Jesus comes to rule and reign. He is getting ready to deal with our oppressors; I can feel it! Pure joy will overtake us when we see how much better our lives are without them. Then there is this; one of my favorite verses that I couldn’t resist including today:
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17
Praise him now; our waiting is almost over.
