“…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…” (Zeph. 3:17).
Regardless of how we may feel at times, we are never alone. God, not only inhabits the praises of His people, but He also resides with those who are oppressed and burdened. In addition to this, He hears the cry of our heart, and ushers in His joy to be our source of strength.
Oftentimes, we are in the midst of a painful season and the enemy attempts to use these moments to isolate us from the community of believers. However, God not only uses those moments to minister to our spirit Himself, but also sends forth a word of affirmation through others. In other words, He wants us to know that we are not alone and He is showing Himself strong on our behalf even when we cannot see it.
So be encouraged today. You are not alone. Stand still and know that the Lord is singing “peace” into your situation. Stand still and listen to these sweet sounds as He lavishes His love upon you. Your life will never be the same!
