“耶和华—你的上帝是施行拯救、 大有能力的 主 。 他在你中间必因你欢欣喜乐， 默然爱你，且因你喜乐而欢呼。”
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.
Z E P H A N I A H 3 : 1 7
God wants to be with you so much that he would leave the comforts of heaven to walk with you on earth if he could. Oh wait. He can. And he did! There may not be a greater desire on his heart than to be with you. He wants to talk about news and sports and weather on your way to work. He wants to help you make a sit-down dinner and then throw soapsuds at you when you clean the dishes. He wants to throw a ball in the park and sing you a lullaby at night. In the Bible, a guy named Zephaniah (Zephy to his mom, maybe), spoke about how God’s joy hit its peak when he was with his people. Much like a parent enamored by their first grader in the Christmas concert, or a husband staring into the eyes of his bride on their wedding day, or a soldier who would give his life to save yours, the Lord loves you with an everlasting love.
Pray for the Day:
Dear Jesus, thank you for delighting in me. Amen.
