HE is Mighty

Zephaniah 3:17 King James

17 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

New Living

17 For the Lord your God is living among you.
      He is a mighty savior.
   He will take delight in you with gladness.
      With his love, he will calm all your fears.
      He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

This morning I woke Up thinking about this verse for the second time in just a few days. It's a powerful verse. It tells me that no matter what we may encounter today...The Lord is with us! Isn't that exciting? He is among us...with us...every step of our day no matter what we are facing. He rejoices in and me...Wow! All we have to do is just rest in Him because He is here...right here...with us, taking care of us and watching over us. He will calm all our fears...right now...we just have to give them to Him.

If Jesus lives in our hearts we have nothing to fear. Satan will try to get in and make us fearful but remember this...satan is a liar! satan comes to kill, steal and destroy. satan wants to steal your joy...your peace...your song! Don't let him do that. Be strong in the Lord today. Stand up to the liar and tell him to get behind you. Stand on the word of the Lord and His truth.

Jesus loves you today and forever. Praise His name!!

Hi Chelle,
I read your post yesterday & came back to offer you some encouragement, but I am happy to see this verse has lifted you. God is so great and He is always there exactly when we need Him to give us His words of comfort and hope no matter what we are going through!
~God Bless You~

Hi Tracy, I didn't remember the verse the first time. It was by way of the song that the Lord brought it back to memory. I remember singing it in church when I was young. Glad to have been able to share a verse you didn't remember with you.

Hi Lisa, It is awesome and great encouragement when we need it!

Hi Lisa, God is great and always comes through for us!

Thank you all for your encouragement today. God bless all of you...Chelle
