Daily Devotional: Give you reason to rejoice

Zephaniah 3:14-17

isreals-restoration 14Sing, O Daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice, be in high spirits and glory with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem [in that day].

15[For then it will be that] the Lord has taken away the judgments against you; He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, even the Lord [Himself], is in the midst of you; [and after He has come to you] you shall not experience or fear evil any more.

16In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear not, O Zion. Let not your hands sink down or be slow and listless.

17The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.

Do your spirits need lifting today? Are you feeling a bit down in the dumps? Whenever you’re experiencing the blues, you can use the praise of these verses in Zephaniah for a spiritual lift. Let the beautiful message of God’s love and care seep into  your soul and give you reason to rejoice.

Lord, my God, how wonderful Your are! Thank You for turning away my punishment with the blood of Jesus. Thank You for conquering all my enemies. And thank You most of all for delighting in me. In me! Quiet my spirit with Your love, Lord. Let me hear Your voice singing words of rejoicing to me. Amen.
